about

Halvcirkel is a string quartet, formed in 2015 in Copenhagen. We came together as a musical collective, to embark on a creative journey. With our background deeply rooted in the classical institution and tradition, we are on a continous search for musical expansion. Through different approaches and techniques, we are challenging ourselves and others in the way we usually frame classical music. Through improvisation, electronics, new spaces and collaborations with other art forms, we are broadening the context and narrative of what a string quartet is and can be. In this light we are constantly reinventing ourselves, being the best embassodors for the great composers of the past and present that we can be.
