Wennäkoski & Danish String Quartet

Lotta Wennäkoski is one of the four composers in a 4-year international commissioning project initiated by the Danish String Quartet. The project pairs new works by Bent Sørensen, Wennäkoski, Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Thomas Adès with Schubert’s chamber music. The pieces have been commissioned by the Danish String Quartet with the support of Carnegie Hall, Cal Performances, UC Santa Barbara Arts & Lectures, the Vancouver Recital Society, Flagey in Brussels, and Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam. Lotta’s commission is scheduled to premiere at Carnegie Hall in April 2022 and in Europe in September 2022.
