The Danish String Quartet’s Grammy-nominated Prism project linking Bach fugues, late Beethoven quartets and works by modern masters continues with volume two of the series. Bach’s Fugue in B flat minor from the Well-Tempered Clavier (in the arrangement by Viennese composer Emanuel Aloys Förster) is brought together with Beethoven’s String Quartet op.130 and Alfred Schnittke’s String Quartet no.3 (composed in 1983).

As the quartet explains, “A beam of music is split through Beethoven’s prism. The important thing to us is that these connections be experienced widely. We hope the listener will join us in the wonder of thee beams of music that travel all the way from Bach through Beethoven to our own times.”

Recorded in historic Reitstadel Neumarkt and produced by Manfred Eicher.

“The playing is exquisitely refined … (the interpretations are) thought-provoking and often startlingly beautiful” – Gramophone on ‘Prism I’

Danish String Quartet:
- Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (violin)
- Frederik Øland (violin)
- Asbjørn Nørgaard (viola)
- Fredrik Schøyen Sjölin (cello)
