"We are simply your friendly neighborhood string quartet with above average amounts of beard."

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 Adès and Schnittke 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 we are thrilled to present them in their Hong Kong debut.
