The playing was so direct, confident and engrossing I almost forgot to notice that technical matters, like intonation, blending and balance, were impeccable.”
Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

Embodying the quintessential elements of a chamber music ensemble, the Danish String Quartet has established a reputation for its integrated sound, flawless intonation, and judicious balance. With its technical and interpretive talents, matched by an infectious joy for music-making, the quartet is in demand worldwide by concert and festival presenters.
