Description

Borodin Quartet

ABOUT THIS CONCERT
For more than seventy years, the venerable Borodin Quartet has been celebrated for its "uncommonly rich, even tone and consoling warmth. For sheer musical presence, it has few equals," writes The Sunday Telegraph. Universally recognized for unmistakable authority in their performances of Russian music, these artists have a profound connection to the music of Dmitri Shostakovich, born from a decades-long relationship with the composer. The Borodin’s cycles of the complete Shostakovich quartets, widely regarded as definitive interpretations, have been performed in major venues throughout the world.
