Formed under the midnight sun in 2006, the Engegård Quartet has rapidly become one of Norway’s most sought after ensembles, performing across Europe and the Americas. As well as the ‘Fifths’ Quartet, one of Haydn’s masterly Op 76 set, the Engegårds bring an exciting calling card in Grieg’s dramatic quartet and close with another Nordic masterpiece, the only quartet that Sibelius composed in his maturity - intense, and very personal.

"This ensemble ́s variety in expression was incredible... [they] shook their audience with the intensity of their playing”
