The Danish String Quartet is performing.
"La Nouvelle Athènes" is a string quartet inspired by an area in Paris in the 9. arrondissement, where The Norwegian Composer's Union has an apartment. A beautiful area at the foot of Montmartre where many great artists lived.
The work is in 3 movements:
1. "Rue Notre Dame de Lorette - The birth of Paul Gauguin".
2. "Rue Pigalle - The suffering of Vincent Van Gogh".
3. "Rue de la Rochefoucauld - The death of Gustave Moreau".
