This extraordinary double bill brings together two leading Nordic ensembles, one Swedish and one Danish, that will include a 400 year range of folk music traditions.

Swedish trio Väsen‘s primary influence is the folk music and traditional instruments of their homeland, namely the nyckelharpa, and their music stretches boundaries to incorporate fluid improvisation and compositional additives. The Danish String Quartet‘s love of traditional Scandinavian folk music is becoming as well known as the quartet’s masterly approach to the classical repertoire. The four strings present their favorite melodies from Nordic folk music, including selections from their recent release, Wood Works, a critically acclaimed, sonically lustrous and cohesively conceived collection of music that is rooted in their ancient melodies from Nordic folk music.
