Described as ‘the quartet world’s most senior ensemble’, the Borodin Qt is one of the great quartets of our time.
The Qt celebrated its 65th anniversary with a sold-out concert at the Wigmore Hall, in London, a week before this live recording from the Cité de la Musique. Following the performance the Financial Times wrote that ‘today’s Borodin Quartet has lost nothing of its old authority’.
The Telegraph named this anniversary concert at the Wigmore Hall as their best chamber moment of 2010, stating that the quartet ‘proved that decades of experience really count’. The Sunday Telegraph wrote ‘the Borodin Quartet plays with uncommonly rich, even tone and consoling warmth. For sheer musical presence, it has few equals.’ The quartet has stayed true to its roots, retaining its unique sound and style of playing over the years.
The quartet’s recording of the Brahms quartets on Warners is described in the Penguin Guide as ‘Marvellously sophisticated playing.’ This is the first DVD release of this material.
