About the Engegård Quartet

Formed under the midnight sun in Lofoten in 2006, the Engegård is one of Norway’s most sought after ensembles. Their bold, fresh interpretations combined with an attachment to their Scandinavian roots have attracted international acclaim. The quartet has performed throughout Europe as well as in South America with concerts in Bogotá and Sao Paolo. They also bring superb music back to Norway – Arvid Engegård as founder of the Lofoten Festival, and Juliet Jopling as artistic director of the Oslo Quartet Series.

The Engegård love to collaborate with colleagues from different musical traditions – with Hardanger fiddler Nils Økland; with jazz-violinist Ola Kvernberg; and Ibsen/Beethoven with actor Bjørn Sundquist.

The Engegård Quartet is supported by the Norwegian Arts Council.
