With impeccable musical finesse, ruthless virtuosity, a renegade musical philosophy and dashingly stylish presentation, Oslo Fat String Quartet turns classical music on its head – in an irresistibly fun fashion. All leading players in Oslo’s two world class orchestras, the Philharmonic and the Opera, the musical pedigree of the group’s four double-bass players is impressive. Together, their repertoire ranges from re-imaginings of classical favourites through to fresh interpretations of modern classics such as the theme from The Godfather – all presented in the ensemble’s own arrangements. Oslo Fat String Quartet will warm your heart with generous servings of musical evergreens, refresh your palette with charming surprises, and take your breath away with their remarkable, acrobatic musical wizardry.
