Gustav Helsted was born in Copenhagen in 1857.

Several of his concertos are available on YouTube to the general public.

He appears to have composed five string quartets, of which only three are numbered:

- in B minor (1881)
- no. 1 in D minor, opus 3 (1884)
- no. 2 in C minor, opus 19 (1891)
- no. 3 in F major, opus 24  (1898)
- in F minor, opus 33 (1922)

Here is the last string quartet, in F minor, opus 33 (1922). There are four movements:

I. Allegro con fuoco
II. Presto appassionato
III. Andante sostenuto
IV. Allegro risoluto

It was performed by:
