      Schubert Club Mix: Danish String Quartet "Last Leaf"

      The Danish String Quartet, Schubert Club’s Featured Ensemble for the 2019-2020 season, made its debut at the Copenhagen Summer Festival in 2002. They are known as one of the greatest string quartets touring the world, performing classical, contemporary, and Scandinavian folk music with passion and precision.

      Violinists Frederik Øland and Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen and violist Asbjørn Nørgaard met as children at a music summer camp where they played both football and music together, eventually making the transition into a serious string quartet in their teens and studying at Copenhagen’s Royal Academy of Music. In 2008, the three Danes were joined by Norwegian cellist Fredrik Schøyen Sjölin. Since 2007, the group has curated its own annual festival —DSQ Festival— in Nyboder, Copenhagen. 2016 marked the beginning of Series of Four, the quartet’s new concert series in the concert hall of The Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen.The quartet was also named as a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist for 2013-15.

      The Quartet’s program for Schubert Club Mix will include selections from their second recording of Scandinavian folk music, entitled “Last Leaf.”
