The Danish String Quartet has had some wildly original programming ideas; here they settle for just a well-thought-out set of contemporary pieces. All three of these string quartets are early works by composers who have since gone on to renown; at the time of the album's 2016 release, Hans Abrahamsen was gaining lots of attention from well beyond his native Denmark

Danish String Quartet (ECM). Their last album was a set of winsome Nordic folk tunes; now comes this classy ECM debut with three bold early works by contemporary composers. Hans Abrahamsen described the exploded landscapes of his 10 Preludes as short stories ; Thomas Adès called his Arcadiana images associated with ideas of the idyll, while Per Nørgard’s Quartetto Breve is seven handsomely sculpted minutes of almost-tonality.

The group has a new record called Adès/Nørgard/Abrahamsen that features a program of Danish and British music. The composers highlighted on this release - Thomas Adès, Per Nørgard and Hans Abrahamsen - hold a special place in the story of The Danish String Quartet. Recently, two of the group's members - violist Asbjørn Nørgaard and violinist Frederik Øland - spoke with NPR's Scott Simon about how the recording, and the group itself, came together. The Abrahamsen was almost the first quartet we learned, almost 15 years ago. At this point, we were quite young; we were still teenagers. We had an idea that classical music was mostly Brahms, Mozart, Haydn - kind of nice stuff. And then our chamber music teacher back then, he put in front of us this piece by Abrahamsen. We had never heard about this guy. We started to play and it sounded really crazy. All three of these string quartets are early works by composers who have since gone on to renown; at the time of the album's 2016 release, Hans Abrahamsen was gaining lots of attention from well beyond his native Denmark

Album including Album cover Booklet (PDF). Das Danish String Quartet gilt bei Musikfreunden und Kritikern als eines der besten der Neuzeit. Auf seinem Debüt bei ECM-Rekords brilliert das Streichquartett mit einer reizvollen Mixtur aus britischen und dänischen Kompositionen. Den musikalischen Reigen eröffnet „Arcadiana, Op. 12 des britischen Komponisten Thomas Adès. Das 1994 komponierte Werk ist eine musikalische Reise durch die blühenden Landschaften Arkadiens, wie sie Vergil in seinen Hirtenliedern beschrieb.

Hans Abrahamsen (born 23 December 1952) is a Danish composer. He went on to study music theory at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. His music is inspired by his mentors Per Nørgård and Pelle, who were two of his composition teachers, and in the 1980s he became close both personally and stylistically (partly through another period of study) to György Ligeti. 4 (2012). let me tell you (2013), for soprano and orchestra; written for Barbara Hannigan. Left, alone (2015), for piano left-hand and orchestra. The Snow Queen (2019), opera. Michelsen, Thomas (2008).
