CONCERT: Halvcirkel


*The concert is postponed from the 19.8 at 6 pm to 14.10 at 7 pm.

Halvcirkel is a Danish string quartet, formed in 2015 in Copenhagen. They came together as a musical collective, to embark on a creative journey. With their background deeply rooted in the classical institution and tradition; they are on a continuous search for musical expansion.

Through improvisation, electronics, new spaces and collaborations with other art forms, Halvcirkel is broadening the context and narrative of what a string quartet is and can be. Their keywords are presence and intensity.

They have collaborated with composers such as Terry Riley, Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass, Shostakovich, Benjamin Britten, Maurice Ravel as well as closer collaborations with Copenhagen based composers such as Signe Lykke, Anders Lauge Meldgaard and Nick Martin.
