Alexander Kagan has been appointed concert master at Bergen Philharmonic and we have decided it's too complicated to continue to meet regularly. Therefore we are so happy to announce that we play with our dear sister Gudrun Dahlkvist on violin from now on! Kersti and Gudrun are now alternating first and second violin.
German composer Jörg Widmann (born 1973) is currently one of the world’s most prominent composers, and is also a clarinettist and conductor. Widmann’s elegant and imaginative music is abundant with expressive power. It is deeply anchored in music history, but is also very much music for our time.
We are very happy to share a concert with the composer himself at Stockholm Concert Hall 12 November, where we will perform his 3rd string quartet "Jagdquartett".

"Verneigung vor Vorangegangenen"
"The nearly holistic colorfulness, that each of the four musicians were creating with their individual instruments, sprang to a common voice with which the Dahlkvist Quartet spoke of the future of the liberated chamber music."
