After award-winning Langgaard recordings, the Nightingale String Quartet turns to one of the great unsung quartet cycles of the last century, that of Vagn Holmboe (1909-1996). Volume 1 in this new cycle takes in the composer's first published quartet, his momentum-fueled Quartet No. 3 and his taut Quartet No. 15 with it's pathos-imbued funeral march. These are fresh new performances that support the idea that the deeper you dig into Holmboe's music, the more you find. Nightingale String Quartet is based in Copenhagen and consists of Gunvor Sihm and Josefine Dalsgaard, violins, Marie Louise Broholt Jensen, viola, and Louisa Schwab, cello. The core of the quartet's identity is their passion for the amazing string quartet repertoire as well as their strong love for each other as musicians and best friends.
