Engegård Quartet

String Quartet
Saturday 15th February, 2020 at 7:30pm

Formed under the midnight sun in Lofoten in 2006, the Engegård Quartet has rapidly become one of Norway’s most sought-after ensembles.  Their bold, fresh interpretations of the classical repertoire combined with a deep attachment to their Scandinavian roots has attracted international acclaim, and inspired some innovative partnerships and programming.  The quartet's debut CD was praised as 'breath-taking' in The Strad, while their second release won Pizzicato magazine's 'Supersonic Award'.  Their recent CD of works by Grieg, Sibelius and Olav Anton Thommessen was praised by Tully Potter in Music Web International as 'what Grieg lovers have been waiting for'.
