The Quatuor Danel was founded in 1991 and has been at the forefront of the international music scene ever since, with important concert performances. The quartet is famous for their bold, concentrated interpretations of the string quartet cycles of Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Shostakovich, and Weinberg. Their lively and fresh vision on the traditional quartet repertoire has delivered them subsequent praise from public and press. At TMA they will be performing Borodin’s String Quartet No. 2 in D major, Myaskovsky’s Presto fantastico from Quartet No. 13 (1949), and Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 3 in F major, Op. 73. Great Performances is supported in part by the Dorothy MacKenzie Price Fund and Kingston Healthcare.
