Oslo Strykekvartett tar deg med på en forrykende reise fra Beethovens mesterlige klang til Bernsteins sprudlende klassikere! 

Oslo Strykekvartett har vært en spydspiss i det norske kammermusikkmiljøet helt siden starten i 1991. De har gitt ut en drøss av prisbelønnede plater, spilt alle Beethovens strykekvartetter to ganger tidligere, og gjestet Carnige Hall & Wigmore Hall en rekke ganger gjennom karrieren. Nå får du sjansen til å høre dem på Sentralen. Oslo Strykekvartett spiller på instrumenter fra samlingen til Dextra Musica.

Oslo String Quartet was founded in 1991 by violinists Geir Inge Lotsberg and Per Kristian Skalstad, viola player Are Sandbakken, and cellist Øystein Sonstad. The four members each had wide experience from playing with other ensembles and orchestras at home and abroad, coming together to form an élite group for refined studies of the chamber music repertoire.To begin with this resulted in an extensive series of concerts at the University Aula in Oslo, where Beethoven’s string quartets comprised the core of their programmes. The “Beethoven Code” festival, during which Oslo String Quartet performed Beethoven’s complete string quartets for the second time, proved to be a major breakthrough, attracting new audience members from a great variety of backgrounds. As well as having been regular guests at all the major chamber music festivals in Norway for many years, Oslo String Quartet has been invited to major international events, including the Schleswig Holstein festival. The quartet has toured Germany and the rest of Europe, and given regular performances at London’s Wigmore Hall. Their USA début in 2005, at Carnegie Hall in New York, is the highlight of their international career to date.
