2019 Music Festival: Borodin Quartet

Classical
For more than seventy years, the Borodin Quartet has been celebrated for its insight and authority in the chamber music repertoire. Revered for its searching performances of Beethoven and Shostakovich, the Quartet is equally at home in music ranging from Mozart to Stravinsky. Described by the Daily Telegraph Australia as “the Russian grandmasters,” the Borodin Quartet’s particular affinity with Russian repertoire is based on constant promotion, performances and recording of the pillars of Russian string quartet music - Borodin, Tchaikovsky, and Shostakovich, as well as Glinka, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, and Schnittke. The Quartet is universally recognized for its genuine interpretation of Russian music, generating critical acclaim all over the world; the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung writes about them “here we have not four individual players, but a single sixteen-stringed instrument of great virtuosity”. Co-presented by the Friends of Chamber Music of Miami. Subscriptions available.
