Nordic String Quartet

Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen (1932–2016) managed to unite every faction of progressive Danish music in admiration. After their acclaimed first volume in this new chronological cycle of the composer’s complete string quartets, the Nordic String Quartet arrives at the works that reveal the composer’s musical imagination in all its unbridled joy, brilliance, and eccentricity. Works spanning 27 years, including three written for the world-famous Kronos Quartet, see the composer toying with form, sparring with nature, and grappling with seemingly irreconcilable opposites.
