Absalon String Quartet

Absalon String Quartet

Copenhagen, Denmark

Absalon String Quartet is a young Copenhagen-based ensemble formed in 2020. In January they won the P2 Kammermusikkonkurrence 2023 in Copenhagen. The quartet quickly gained recognition when they won the Rued Langgaard Competition in 2021 and in that connection played at the opening concert of the Rued Langgaard Festival in the same year. During the summer of 2022, the up-and-coming quartet has given several concerts, e.g., at the Bornholm Music Festival and the Oslo Chamber Music Festival. ASQ has also taken part in several masterclasses, including David Harrington from the Kronos Quartet as part of the Bergen Festival, and most recently with the Danish String Quartet at the DSQ Academy. The quartet works with Professor Tim Frederiksen at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen.
