The La Jolla Music Society‘s chamber music series continues Saturday evening with the “modern vikings” of the Danish String Quartet.

The quartet, which made its debut 12 years ago in Copenhagen, has demonstrated a passion for Scandinavian composers while proving skilled and profound performers of all classical masters. The Washington Post said the self-professed “modern Vikings” are “one of the best quartets before the public today.”

The program at 8 p.m. at the MCASD Sherwood Auditorium includes Nielsen’s String Quartet No. 4 in F Major, Opus 44, FS36, along with Haydn’s String Quartet in G Major, Opus 77, No. 1 and Beethoven’s String Quartet in C-sharp Minor, Opus 131.

Tickets are $30-$80 and are available through the La Jolla Music Society box office at 858-459-3728 or online at
