WFMT Impromptu, Thursday at 4:00 pm


There’s been a lot of buzz around these boys lately. The New Yorker, NPR’s Performance Today, and The Washington Post all have taken note of the quartet that began a residency at Lincoln Center this fall. They are the Danish String Quartet, a group of guys who met as pre-teens at music camp in Denmark, and have been best friends and musical collaborators ever since.
