The Schubert Club’s Music in the Park Series will present two chamber music concerts in October at St. Anthony Park United Church of Christ, 2129 Commonwealth Ave.
The Danish String Quartet will perform on Sunday, Oct. 12, and the Miami String Quarter with pianist Lydia Artymiw will perform on Sunday, Oct. 26. Both concerts begin at 4 p.m. with a preconcert talk beginning at 3 p.m.
Embodying the quintessential elements of a chamber music ensemble, the Danish String Quartet has established a reputation for its integrated sound, impeccable intonation and judicious balance. The quartet makes its Twin Cities and Music in the Park Series debut at this concert.
Praised in the New York Times as having everything one wants in a quartet: a rich, precisely balanced sound, a broad coloristic palette, real unity of interpretive purpose and seemingly unflagging energy,” the Miami String Quartet has established its place among the most widely respected quartets in America.
For more than 20 years, their diversity in programming, poise in performance, keen sense of ensemble and impeccable musicality have made the Miami String Quartet one of the most sought-after quartets in chamber music today. The quartet returns to Music in the Park Series with their long-time musical collaborator, Artymiw, who has also appeared on the series with many other celebrated chamber ensembles including the American, Daedalus and Guarneri string quartets. Artymiw is Distinguished McKnight Professor of Piano at the University of Minnesota School of Music, where she has taught since 1989.
