Alice Tully Hall, Starr Theater, Adrienne Arsht stage at Lincoln Centerhttp://www.lincolncenter.org/mostly-mozart/show/danish-string-quartet
1941 Broadway, New York, NY 10023
The exciting and versatile Danish String Quartet presents an exhilarating and playful side of Beethoven. His Op.18, No. 2 is rich with humor—parodying Haydn and the Viennese customs of the time—while his first “Razumovsky” quartet, written during one of the composer’s most prolific periods, balances wit with profundity.
Quartet in G major, Op. 18, No. 2
Quartet in F major, Op. 59, No. 1 (“Razumovsky”)
BONUS TIP: Catch their appearance right after this concert in A Little Night Music at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse.
