Since making its debut in 2002 at the Copenhagen Festival, the Danish String Quartet—comprised of three Danes and a Norwegian—has become one of the most sought-after quartets in the United States, earning a coveted appointment with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s highly regarded CMS Two program and an appointment with BBC Radio 3 as a New Generation Artist.

Frequently incorporating adventurous contemporary works into its programs alongside classical masterworks, the quartet returns to Orange County with a program featuring German composer Jörg Widmann's Jagdquartett, along with works by Haydn, Mozart and Brahms.
