Atrium String Quartet (St. Petersburg, Russia) with pianist Denis Evstuhin
The Atrium String Quartet is touring the U.S. from their native St. Petersburg, Russia and they're making one and only Minnesota concert stop at Sundin Music Hall on Monday, June 15 at 7 pm. The Atrium Quartet is a winner of two of the most prestigious International Competitions for String Quartet: First prize and Audience Prize of the 9th London International String Quartet Competition in 2003 and Grand-Prix of the 5th International String Quartet Competition in Bordeaux in 2007.
Founded in 2000 in St Petersburg under the inspiration of Professor Josef Levinson, the Quartet graduated from the St Petersburg Conservatoire in 2003 and then completed their education as a quartet-in-residence in Amsterdam, coached by Prof. Stefan Metz at the Netherland String Quartet Academy and in the Hochschule fur Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin with Prof. Eberhard Feltz. They've performed at London's renowned Wigmore Hall, the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and many other esteemed venues across the globe. This program features the second of Beethoven's "Razumovsky" Quartets, plus the rarely heard Third quartet by Dmitri Shostakovich. They will be joined by award-winning pianist Denis Evstuhin for the second half, playing Antonin Dvorak's Piano Quintet in A major.
The acoustics in Sundin Music Hall are perfect for such a concert and we hope to see you there!
