We open with shining stars of the chamber music galaxy. Called “masters of subtlety and refinement” by the Los Angeles Times, this Grammy-nominated quartet is renowned also for its robust interpretations of Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky and the rousing folk tunes of their Russian homeland. It’s said no classical collection is complete without their recordings. Audiences from Toronto to Tokyo, from Lithuania to London and in music halls across the United States would agree. A clarinet soloist will also perform.
