Exciting Danish String Quartet
Makes their Hong Kong Debut
Sunday, 3 Jun, 2018 8pm at Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall
The Danish String Quartet “is in a different league altogether, and one that should be attended every time they’re in town.” (Examiner). This unusually blonde and bearded young string quartet has been winning the world over with their “warmth, wit, beautiful tone, and technical prowess” (NPR). Known for their diverse programming, incredible versatility and programmes ranging from Beethoven to Nordic folk tunes, these Danish musicians bring a fresh face to the traditional classical string quartet. The quartet has seen incredible success and rave reviews throughout their ten years together, and are set to mesmerize Hong Kong audiences in their Hong Kong debut.
This concert is part of Premiere Performances’ Recital Series sponsored by Citi. This evening concert is sponsored by SKAGEN and supported by the Danish Chamber of Commerce. The hotel sponsor is The Luxe Manor.
