About the Artists
The members of The Fresk Quartet began playing together at the College of Music in Stockholm in the early 1960s. In 1965 they officially formed a quartet, and two years later were employed by Rikskonserter, the Swedish Institute for National Concerts. After studying in Brussels under the guidance of one of Europe's foremost teachers of chamber music, the Quartet then began extensive tours of Sweden. Their concert activities expanded to include tours of other countries, and they soon became one of the most popular of the the younger ensembles. In 1977 and 1978 they performed at the Luzerne International Festival, and in 1977 toured the United States for the first time. Two ensuing American tours in 1979 and 1980 proved enormously successful. They have also performed in the Soviet Union, Canada, and Australia.
In the current season, The Fresk Quartet is touring under the banner of "Scandinavia Today" -an American celebration of contemporary Scandinavian culture, sponsored and administered by the American-Scandinavian Foundation with support from Volvo, Atlantic Richfield Company, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Arts. It is organized with the cooperation of the governments of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden through the Secretariat for Nordic Cultural Cooperation.
In addition to its Ann Arbor debut this evening, The Fresk Quartet is performing in New York's Alice Tully Hall, the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., and in the Coleman Series in Los Angeles.
