The Engegård Quartet

Welcome to Troldsalen on Sunday 9 April at 14.00.


The Engegård Quartet has won rave international reviews and 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 have performed in some of Europe's finest venues including the Mozarteum in Salzburg and Prague's Rudolfinum, and last year travelled to South America for concerts in Bogotá and Sao Paolo.

Edvard Grieg himself characterised his G minor quartet as a slice out of his own life :”… concealed  within it, are samples of that heart’s blood of which it is be hoped posterity will see more than a few drops.”

The musical language is rather radical, and in many ways Grieg`s quartet is a bridge between the late Beethoven quartets and Debussy’s quartet fifteen years later.

Beethoven’s String Quartet nr. 13 opus 130 is one of his very last pieces in this genre.
