Description

“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,” says The Los Angeles Times of the Danish String Quartet. The Quartet closes the 2021 season of the Robert Mann Chamber Music Series with a program packed with diverse dances and ending with Schubert’s Quartet in G Major. “In his last and greatest string quartet Schubert seems to have set out, like Mahler, to contain the world” (Gramophone).
