Product Description The Danish String Quartets love of traditional Scandinavian folk music is becoming as well known as the quartets masterly approach to the classical repertoire. Now the renowned ensemble, at present house quartet at both New York's Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society and BBC Radio 3, is releasing the vinyl version of Wood Works, presenting their favorite melodies from Nordic folk music including the 400 year old bridal music from the island of Fanø that has spread far and wide as a video with over 50,000 plays across the internet. The high technical and musical quality, the joy of playing, the powerful impact the quartet makes on stage and the fresh approach to familiar repertoire has become a Danish String Quartet trademark. These qualities have led the quartet to great success. The four young musicians have performed all over Europe, returning repeatedly to Germany and the UK particularly. Review The quartet mines a surprisingly varied range of moods, instrumental effects and color, and tempo. --Strings Magazine, December 2014 "It was a good year for Danish music, with excellent recordings of symphonies by Carl Nielsen, Per Norgard and Poul Ruders, plus two lovely albums of Rued Langgaard's string quartets. But the most striking of all is Wood Works, a musical journey through Nordic folk music guided by the extraordinarily gifted Danish String Quartet. "Sonderho Bridal Triology - Part II," with its colorful grooves, turns out to be a 400-year-old wedding song from the Danish island of Fano. There are stops in other Nordic hamlets for local versions of polkas and jigs, all played with such unmannered charm that you might wish the group would give up its usual diet of Haydn and Brahms." --Tom Huizenga, NPR Best Classical Albums of 2014
