Musica Viva presents Borodin Quartet

27 Sep 2014

Address: Melbourne Recital Centre, 31 Sturt Street, Southbank, Victoria 3006

Freecall: 1800 688 482  


At the Melbourne Recital Centre, the legendary Borodin String Quartet perform.

The printed music it uses bears the autograph markings of other notable Soviet colleagues such as Dmitry Shostakovich. Just as importantly, the Quartet's unwritten traditions carries a unique impact that makes every concert glow with the authenticity of experience and knowledge. Membership of the Quartet has changed slowly over the decades, allowing each new player to fully immerse themselves into the mighty 'Borodin sound'.

Approaching their 70th concert season, the quartet return to Australia with music of great depth and emotional resonance. Shostakovich's powerful Quartet no 8 and its dark sister, no 11, sharply contrast with the Classical beauty of cornerstone repertoire from Beethoven. These lend balance to the evocative drama of Schubert's great 'Death and the Maiden', and to the great Russian sensibility that underpins every work by Tchaikovsky.

Presented by Musica Viva.
