The Borodin Quartet, founded in 1945, commands special respect in the chamber music world. It has preserved a unique Russian performance tradition, focusing on the masterpieces at the very heart of the quartet repertoire.
Its interpretations are celebrated for their intensity and focus, a style in which individualism dedicates itself to the collaborative spirit of chamber music and total service of the composer’s wishes. We welcome the current members back for the first time since their highly acclaimed Shostakovich quartet cycle for us in May 2015.
