BRICO Collective X Absalon String Quartet

The newly established BRICO Collective are teaming up with the award-winning Absalon String Quartet

The members of BRICO Collective – Anna Bignami, Thomas Cortes and Tom Irvine – have each written a new work for string quartet to be premiered at this concert.

BRICO’s composers met as students on the Rhythmic Composition masters at RAMA in Aarhus. Though they come from predominantly rhythmic backgrounds, all make use of classical instrumentation in their various projects that span pop, folk, electronic, and jazz.

For this concert they will instead work with a purely classical ensemble, the Absalon String Quartet, and apply the musical characteristics of their different disciplines in the classical world.

Absalon Quartet is an award-winning string quartet based in Copenhagen. Like BRICO’s composers, Absalon’s musicians are not from strictly classical backgrounds, with their diverse influences and experience bringing a fresh and exciting energy to the quartet format. They were the winners of the Rued Langgaard competition in 2021, and in 2023 received the Léonie Sonnings Talent Prize in addition to winning P2’s Chamber Music Competition.

Entry 75 kr – tickets available via Billetto or on the door.
