We are pleased to announce the details of the Borodin Quartet’s 2017/18 season as the fantastic 2016/17 season comes to an end.
The 16/17 season was a great success for the Borodin Quartet, with highlights including a tour of China, appearances at Festival Casals, Bogota International Musica Festival, International Music Festival La Palma, Great Mountains Music Festival South Korea, Kaposfest and Oslo Chamber Music Festival, and concerts in Istanbul, Lyon, Bilbao, Essen, Pamplona, Bruges, Miami, Rotterdam, Zwolle, Amsterdam, Norwich, Budapest, Madrid, St Petersburg and of course Moscow. The 16/17 season also saw the Borodin Quartet conclude their Beethoven and Shostakovich cycle at Wigmore Hall in London and began a collaboration with Vladimir Jurowski on the Martinu and Schulhoff Concertos for string quartet and orchestra. They performed these works with the Staatskapelle Dresden Orchestra and will return to perform them with other orchestras under the baton of Maestro Jurowski in Moscow and London.
