Moscow String Quartet
The Mill Valley Chamber music Society presents the Moscow String Quartet in the following program:
Beethoven, op. 95 in f minor "Serioso"
Borodin quartet no. 2, in D major (1881)
Shostakovich Quartet no. 2, op. 68 in A major
Described by Alfred Schnittke as "an extraordinary ensemble that distinguishes itself with refined musical style, an unusually beautiful sound, and a tremendous artistic temperament", the Moscow String Quartet has emerged as one of the major Russian chamber ensembles of today. Known as passionate promoters of twentieth century Western music in Russia and contemporary Soviet music in the West, the quartet was inspired by the great Russian masters such as David Oistrakh, Mstislav Rostropovich, Sviatoslav Richter, Emil Gilels and the original Borodin Quartet.
Note: This performance is a substitute for the originally scheduled Auryn Quartet who had to cancel due to illness.
