The contemporary piece by young Danish composer Matias Vestergaard is the strings’ commissioned piece  - there is a special prize for the best interpretation of that presented in the Finale on Saturday at the marvelous concert hall at the Royal Danish Academy of Music at 5 p.m. In the Finale all string quartets play Carl Nielsen and Beethoven or Schubert.
