An Icelandic premiere and Schubert's 'Rosamunde'

The Danish String Quartet is one of the top quartets that in recent years has brought a fresh breeze to the sometimes highbrow quartet culture. For this foursome, a concert is not a solemn musical worship, but a gathering with friends. Not without reason was the previous episode of the Döppelganger project on Schubert's string quartets counted among the five best concerts of 2022 by both Het Parool and NRC.

In episode three of the project, Danish String Quartet also mirrors Schubert's quartet music, which is so directly relevant, with a Scandinavian premiere. Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir is making a name for herself with atmospheric music that reflects nature. Music that reflects the structure of a slipping landscape or captures the movement of foliage in sound.

For four years, the Danish String Quartet comes to Amsterdam for the project Doppelgänger, in which it combines string quartets by Franz Schubert with new contemporary compositions from Scandinavia. This is the third edition.
