Returning to our series after their well-received 2017 debut, the Danish String Quartet, Musical America’s 2020 Ensemble of the Year, will perform two back-to-back concerts featuring a program of Beethoven string quartets.

“It’s no easy matter for a string quartet to acquire that rock-star vibe, especially for an ensemble that still keeps one foot firmly planted in the traditional chamber repertoire.” – San Francisco Chronicle

Note:  A second performance on February 4, 2020, will be offered as a Chamber Series "add-on" performance.  This concert will also feature Beethoven string quartets (a different program from the February 5 concert).
