Founded in 1939, the Rimsky- Korsakov String Quartet is a precious heirloom of the Russian music culture.The present members Mikhail Bondarev (violin), Ekaterina Belisova (violin), Alexei Popov (viola), Anton Andreev (cello) are graduates of the Saint Petersburg Conservatory. By virtue of a shared heritage they are steeped in the grand tradition of Russian music making, achieving organic and convincing interpretations of a diverse repertoire of masterworks, Russian classics and contemporary masters.
The Quartet champions the music of Russian composers with the core of their repertoire being the music of Borodin,Tchaikovsky, Glazunov, Taneyev and Stravinsky. They also perform lesser-known masterworks of Glinka, Alabiev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Gretchaninov, Miaskovsky and Mossolov.
