In October and December of 2020, the Danish String Quartet will perform the full cycle of Beethoven string quartets over a series of six concerts as we celebrate Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday. The full series of Beethoven concerts comprises the Quartet’s Music in the Park Series performance and two recitals on the International Artist Series, plus three additional concerts. This opportunity to witness the full Beethoven String Quartet cycle played by one of the world’s leading string quartets is truly an experience not to be missed. Those who purchase the full six concert package will receive free passes to a pre-series “Introduction to Beethoven and his string quartets” with musicologist and University of Minnesota lecturer Daniel Freeman, and will be invited to a post-series reception with the quartet members immediately following the 6th and final performance.


“Composer anniversaries appear in various lists with overwhelming regularity, but Beethoven’s 250th birthday in 2020 is an anniversary not to be overlooked. I couldn’t imagine a more thrilling ensemble to explore Beethoven’s complete quartet cycle than the Danish String Quartet. I hope others will join me in treating this as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dig deep into an important part of Beethoven’s musical legacy.”
  – Barry Kempton, Artist and Executive Director
