Come join the Rimsky-Korsakov Quartet as they kick-off their 2014 U.S.A. tour in the Bay Area. The Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet, based in Saint Petersburg, Russia, was formed in 1939, and is a monument to Russian musical history. The present members Mikhail Bondarev (violin), Ekaterina Belisova (violin), Alexei Popov (viola), Anton Andreev (cello) are graduates of the Saint Petersburg Conservatory who, by virtue of a shared background steeped in the grand tradition of Russian music making, achieve organic and convincing interpretations of a diverse repertoire of masterworks, Russian classics, and contemporary masters. For information on the quartet click here.

The program features music by Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Vaughan Williams and Elgar. The program will also feature the rarely heard Prelude and Scherzo for String Octet, Op. 11, by Shostakovich, where the quartet will be joined by the Circadian String Quartet.
