Chamber Music: Danish String Quartet

Cal Performances

Berkeley, CA, United States

This is a past event


The dazzlingly gifted Danish String Quartet returns for its second Berkeley concert this season, pairing a Schubert string quartet with a newly commissioned work as part of it Doppelgänger project, a four-season initiative co-commissioned by Cal Performances. Schubert’s thrillin "Death and the Maiden" quartet, one of the pillars of chamber music repertoire, is matched here with its musical twin, a new quartet by Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski —“a composer with ideas and a distinctive way of voicing them” "The Guardian"—whose music combines a melodic sensibility with percussive techniques and timbres.
