Danish String Quartet

There’s no doubting the Danish String Quartet’s firmly-rooted position within the realm of classical music – “we are simply your friendly neighborhood string quartet,” the group writes on its website, “with above average amounts of beard” – but it’s their understanding of and respect for a different sort of social music, folk music, that’s helping this pioneering ensemble stand even taller. Their love of traditional Scandinavian folk, on exquisite display with their latest release, Wood Works (2014), is as vital to their on-stage presence as the quartet’s masterful, invigorating performances of works from the classical canon. Those new to the realm of roots and folk music – as well as those unfamiliar with the classical world – will both find inspiration and meaningful listening with this high-octane group of Brooklyn-styled savants.
