Formed under the midnight sun in Lofoten in 2006, the Engegård Quartet rapidly became one of the most sought after ensembles in Norway, performing in Bergen Festival and Oslo Chamber Music Festival in their first season. With an internationally acclaimed debut CD under their belts in 2008, the Engegård Quartet tour Scandinavia regularly and perform throughout Europe.
The great quartets of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Bartók are the Engegård Quartet’s core repertoire. With its’ Nordic background, it is natural for the Engegård Quartet to include Edward Grieg and Arne Norheim in its’ programmes. The Engegård Quartet’s encore repertoire has extended on occasion to fill whole concerts, including virtuosic and folk music, and more than a hint of Argentinian Tango. Guests with the Engegård Quartet have included Leif Ove Andsnes, Frans Helmerson and Nobuko Imai. The Engegård Quartet has released three CDs, and is working on two more.
