Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Per Norgard (b. 1932) is one of the most original artists in the cultural life of Denmark. Since 2002 the composer has had a remarkable collaboration with the young Kroger Quartet, to whom he has dedicated his seventh and tenth string quartets. Norgard experimented directly with the Kroger Quartet while composing his tenth string quartet, 'Harvest Timeless', for the ensemble in 2005, thus creating an unusual dialogue between composer and performers. Now the Kroger Quartet's journey deep into Norgard's music culminates with the premiere recording of Norgard's four most recent string quartets on CD.
