Van Der Pals Quartet has a extensive repertoire based on three main parts:
-Standard repertoire: The repertoire for string quartet is enormous and a never ending source of inspiration. The string quartet as medium has inspired composers for hundreds of years and it will take years just to go through the masterpieces from 17th-20th century.
-Previously unknown masterpieces and composers: Van Der Pals Quartet have used much rewarding energy into exploring the works by Leopold van der Pals (Denmark/Holland 1884-1966). The first CD has been recorded for cpo (Classic Produktion Osnabrück) and contains van der Pals first string quartets. The release of this album is expected later this year.
-Cooperation with modern composers: Van Der Pals Quartet have premiered pieces by Wolfram Graf (Germany) and Johan Frandsen (Denmark) and is works continuously with other composers as well.
Apart from the above, Van Der Pals Quartet has cooperated with well known soloists and chamber musicians to expand the ensemble for concerts and tours. Some of these are Johannes Goritzki (Germany/Switzerland), Gitta-Maria Sjöberg (Sweden), Susanna Andersson (Sweden), Jon Gjesme (Norway/Denmark), Maria Spengler (London), Marie Schmalhofer (Germany)
Van Der Pals Quartet takes pride in composing highly interesting programs where the main categories have a clear role, based on a clear musical thought, making the concerts a fascinating listening experience for the audience.
