Folk Spot: Danish Fiddle Quartet (DK)

Danish Fiddle Quartet plays modern Nordic folk music. The music moves in the borderland between the classical tradition and folk music and has a foot and heart in both camps. With this new string quartet, Jørgen Dickmeiss lives out an old dream of playing chamber music. He has assembled a quartet consisting of two classical musicians and two folk musicians, and composed and arranged music for this ensemble. A number of newly written chamber music compositions and a few arrangements of Carl Nielsen’s music and folk melodies. The quartet contains two singers who can also be heard in some of the arrangements. The orchestra will release their debut album in time for Folk Spot Denmark 2023.
