Carl Nielsen pieces performed by The Young Danish String Quartet.
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) took Danish music into the 20th century, and his chamber music has a prominent position in the international repertoire. In spite of this Carl Nielsen only composed a limited number of chamber works for strings. This CD features two of his string quartets (in G minor and F major) and the only string quintet (in G major) he ever composed. All three works played a central role in Carl Nielsen’s musical career, since they were major successes for the debuting composer and contibuted to his initial breakthrough.
The Danish String Quartet, formerly known as the Young Danish String Quartet, made its debut at the Copenhagen Summer Festival in 2002. In the course of remarkably short time the quartet drew attention to itself for its highly committed musicianship and enthralling style, and the ensemble quickly established itself as the most promising news in the classical music world in Denmark.
