It will be a chance to catch these dynamic musicians before they move on to perform the next day at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall. Since their Lewes debut, violinists Rune Sorensen and Frederik Oland, violist Asbiorn Norgaard and cellist Fredrik Sjrlin - all friends in their early 30s - have won additional honors and accolades. Most recently, the group has been named a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist and awarded a three-year appointment to the coveted Chamber Musid Society of Lincoln Center's CMS Two Program. The quartet will begin the afternoon in a popular vein with a transcription for string quartet of Scandinavian folk tunes, music which has become something of a calling card for them. Next will be a performance of Mendelssohn's "String Quartet No. 2 in A Minor, Op. 13," a piece dating from the composer's late teens yet widely acknowledged as a masterwork. Mendelssohn took inspiration from the model of Beethoven's late quartets, one of which the Danes will offer on the second part of the program, the "String Quartet No. 15 in A Minor, Op. 132," completed after Beethoven's recovery from a serious illness. The work's centerpiece is a sublime, heartfelt adagio the composer titled "A Convales- cent's Hymn of Thanksgiving to the Divinity." The 2 p.m. matinee will take place at wheelchair-accessible Bethel United Methodist Church Hall, Fourth and Market streets, Lewes. Tickets are $30. Ages 10-18, as well as one adult per youth, are admitted free with advance reservations; call toll-free 888- 212-6458.
