We have now started our celebration of our first 25 years together! Our very most inspiring quartetfriend Ludwig van Beethoven is givig us the best challenges and musical moments through out the season 16/17. We do perform Beethoven as much as possible, that means at every single concert for a long time. The Great Fugue, opus 74, opus 59/3 and opus 127 are presented during the first part of the season. Check out our upcoming concerts!
Oslo String Quartet is back and look forward to play concerts at Oslo- and Bodø Quartet Series 24th and 25th of March! On the program are Schubert String Quartet nr. 15 in G major and "Er også me borne/ Are also we carried" by Magnar Åm. This piece was commissioned by the quartet, and they will perform it together with the dancer Solveig Styve Holte.
24th of March Oslo String Quartet will also release one more ep of the series of mini-cd’s!
Enjoy the beautiful words about "Are also we carried", written by Magnar Åm (only in Norwegian):
Slik eit insekt kan gå på overflatehinna av vatn, er det kanskje også noko usynleg som held oss menneske oppe, gjer oss uredde for å leve, og villige til å vekse?
