The ‘brilliant’ Borodin Quartet performs ‘perfectly’ in Dresden under Vladimir Jurowski

06 January 2017

The Borodin Quartet was excited to begin the New Year joining the Staatskapelle Dresden under the baton Vladimir Jurowski for three performances of Schulhoff’s Concerto for String Quartet and Wind Orchestra and Martinů’s Concerto for String Quartet and Orchestra at the Semperoper Dresden.

These performances were part of an ongoing collaboration between the Borodin Quartet and Maestro Jurowski which will be culminating in London during the 2018/19 season, when they will be performing together with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Watch this space!

The three performances were well-received by the audience and critics alike, with the Quartet praised for their ‘precision and internal balance’:


‘the Moscow Borodin Quartet, which was founded more than seventy years ago…who now contributed their parts perfectly.’
- Friedbert Streller, Musik in Dresden

‘Borodin Quartet, which in the seventy years of its existence has continued its reputation as a string quartet of world rank despite the changing line-up, led the solo part very homogeneously, with precision and internal balance.’
– Ingrid Gerk, Der Neuer Merker

‘The brilliant Borodin Quartet’ – Karsten Blüthgen, Feuilleton

‘The conductor and orchestra were joined by a string quartet. Not just any string Quartet, rather the Borodin Quartet’ - Morgenpost


The Borodin Quartet’s plans for the rest of January include performances at the Philharmonie Essen, Teatro Gayarre in Pamplona and Concertgebouw Brugge. To see the full concert schedule please visit their website here.
