About Quatuor Danel:
Quatuor Danel has been at the forefront of the European music scene, with major concert performances worldwide and a number of groundbreaking recordings which have won many important international awards. The Quartet will make its American debut during the 2015-16 season, featuring concerts in New York and Washington as well as at series across the country.
The ensemble is famous for their bold, concentrated interpretations of the string quartet cycles of Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Shostakovich, and Weinberg. Their lively and fresh vision on traditional quartet repertoire has won them lavish praise from both the public and the press. Russian composers have a vital place in the Quatuor Danel’s repertoire: they have championed the string quartets of Shostakovich, and their recently reissued recording of the complete cycle (Fuga Libera, 2005) is considered one of the benchmark interpretations of these quartets.
