This season the world-renowned Borromeo Quartet traverses works by two great Russians. Once again they bring the fruit of their labor, and their genius for making the greatest quartet repertoire vivid and meaningful, to our New Hampshire audience and the EEC stage. The Program: Haydn Quartet Op. 77 #2 Shostakovich Quartet No. 12 Tchaikovsky Quartet No. 1 The visionary performances of the Borromeo String Quartet have established it as one of the most important string quartets of our time. The Chicago Tribune calls the Borromeo “a remarkably accomplished string quartet, not simply for its high technical polish and refined tone, but more importantly for the searching musical insights it brings.” The San Diego Reader calls their performances “a musical experience of luminous beauty,” and the Boston Globe says “Each of the greatest string quartets has redefined what the possibilities of the medium are: through the perfection of its ensemble and intonation, through its poise and its passion, the Borromeos are recreating the medium anew and we are lucky to be here to hear it.”
