Borodin Quartet Performs on April 9, 2013 at the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre

One of the longest running chamber music ensembles, the Borodin Quartet, return to Vancouver with a program of Russian masterworks on Tuesday April 9, 2013 at 8pm at the Vancouver Playhouse, as part of Friends of Chamber Music’s 2012/2013 season. The quartet, formed in the Soviet Union in 1945, is celebrated internationally for an intense, stylish (and very Russian) performance tradition, which they will apply to a program of Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich.

“The Borodin Quartet has been performing for Friends of Chamber Music since 1964, longer than any other current ensemble,” said Eric Wilson, program director at Friends of Chamber Music. “Though individual members have naturally changed through the years, the unique performance tradition developed by its founding members has remained remarkably undiminished. Passed down from musician to musician, the Borodin Quartet collectively maintains the same authority and power in making music as when the group first crossed the Iron Curtain to visit us.”

Tickets are $40 at the door or online atwww.friendsofchambermusic.ca/tickets

    I love Russian classical music, and Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich are two of my favourite composers of all time. It would be absolutely amazing to see the Borodin Quartet perform these passionate and intimate works. I’m especially looking forward to hearing the Borodin Quartet’s wonderful interpretation of the Shostakovich’s quartets.
