Alpine Public Library is a proud to partner with Lincoln Center to present a Free Screening of A Little Late Night Music featuring the Danish String Quartet, which was originally recorded at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival on August 7, 2015.

The Danish String Quartet is made of three Danes and one Norwegian cellist. The original three members started playing together in 2001 when they were 15 and 16 years old after professor Tim Frederiksen of The Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen began to coach them. Their cellist, Fredrik joined in 2008. In 2009, they won First Prize in the Eleventh London International String Quartet Competition. In addition to that, their performance garnered them the 20th Century Prize, the Beethoven Prize, the Sidney Griller Award and the Menton Festival Prize. In 2011 they were awarded the highly prestigious Carl Nielsen Prize which is Denmark’s largest cultural prize.
