Danish String Quartet

Stenton’s lovely old village kirk is a favourite Lammermuir venue with the perfect acoustic for this delightful programme. Haydn’s Op 76 quartets, his last complete set, are among his most ambitious chamber pieces. The profound depth of Haydn’s mature mastery sits well next to the youthful freshness of the teenage Mendelssohn’s Beethoven-influenced quartet.

“…what makes their performances special is the maturity and calm of the playing, even during virtuosic passages that whisk by. This is music making of wonderful ease and naturalness”
