DAVID OISTRAKH STRING QUARTET
The first recording of the David Oistrakh Quartet received much praise from the press (“No sooner formed, this young quartet already reaches excellence.”) Achieving comparison with the Borodin and the Beethoven Quartets, this young group offers an impassioned performance of Grieg and Mendelssohn: a powerful, contrasted, physical and always subtly emotional performance. The David Oistrakh Quartet features today’s most outstanding Russian musicians. In 2012 the family of the legendary 20th century violinist honored the quartet with his name. Over the years, artistic friendship and a passion for the art of the quartet brought the young soloists and the grand masters of quartet together to form this extraordinary ensemble. All four musicians play on exemplary Italian instruments made by Antonio Stradivari, Niccolo Amati, and Francesco Ruggeri.
