Beethoven string quartet i c minor, op. 18 no. 4

In the fall of 2018 we did our first Beethoven cycle in Copenhagen at DSQ Festival. Playing his sixteen string quartets in six consecutive days was tough, but also a rewarding travel in many ways. This is from the second day of the festival - live from Bygningskulturens Hus in Copenhagen.

Shine You no More

A tune written by Rune for our album Last Leaf. The inspiration came after listening to a song by the English renaissance composer John Downland called 'Flow my Tears'. In this song from 1596 he uses a very nice chord progression that became the foundation for the C part of Shine You no More. Fun fact: John Dowland was actually composer at the Danish court under King Christian IV.
