Borodin Quartet is pleased to announce a 2017 tour of China

Praised at their recent Wigmore Hall concerts for their ‘rich, emphatic Russian sound, the deliberate and unambiguous phrasing and a compelling sense of drama’ (theartsdesk), the Borodin Quartet is now pleased to announce that they will be touring China in May 2017. The Quartet will continue their legacy of an affinity with Russian repertoire with performances of quartets by both Borodin and Shostakovich and will combine this with Beethoven’s masterful String Quartet No. 6 in B flat major Op. 18.

Borodin Quartet brings its ‘fierce and formidable’ playing to the USA

After starting the 2015/16 Season at Wigmore Hall where they continued their complete journey of Beethoven and Shostakovich String Quartets, the Borodin Quartet brings its 70th anniversary celebrations to the USA. How appropriate that the world’s most famous Russian quartet marks 70 successful years of music making with performances of three of their countrymen’s most celebrated composers: their namesake Borodin; Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky.  However for their opening concert at the Kimmel Centre in Philadelphia they are also joined by cellist David Finckel for Schubert’s String Quintet in C major, D. 956.
