The Danish String Quartet “plays with an urgency that can feel dangerous, and with a unity of intention that makes familiar material stand out in bold relief, as if it were brand new territory… This is a group that makes you listen” (San Jose Mercury News). “They could be grounded in their tone or mystical. They allowed time to stand still, and they could assume the pose of excitingly aggressive rockers. They did it all” (Los Angeles Times). “Do not lose track of this group: Even by today’s high standards, it offers something very special” (The Boston Globe).

“One of the best quartets before the public today” (The Washington Post)
