The Quatuor Danel has been at the forefront of the European music scene since its founding in 1991, with major concert performances worldwide. The quartet made its American debut during the 2015–16 season, featuring concerts at New York’s Frick Collection and the Clarice Smith in College Park, MD, as well as at concert series across the country. The ensemble is famous for its bold, concentrated interpretations of the string quartet cycles of Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Shostakovich, and Weinberg. Their lively and fresh vision of traditional quartet repertoire has won them lavish praise from both the public and the press. Their program includes Beethoven’s Quartet in B-flat major; Op. 18, No. 6; Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 6 in G major, Op. 101; and Weinberg’s Quartet No. 6.
