Flame and Genius

This an opportunity to hear the brilliant Arild Quartet. During the past few years, they have been performing all of Beethoven’s extraordinary string quartets throughout Denmark.

One of Beethoven’s last quartets, Op. 130 no. 13 is nothing short of a masterpiece.

C.F.E. Horneman had a hard time making a name for himself as a composer of serious works, at a time when Gade and Hartmann dominated Copenhagen’s musical life. But today he is regarded as one of the best composers of the Danish Golden Age. This is how Carl Nielsen described Horneman: “He was the flame, the bright flame, the flickering fire of Danish music, melting falsehood and incinerating artifice.”
