The Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet is scheduled to perform 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7 at the Community School of Music and Arts’ Tateuchi Hall, 230 San Antonio Circle, Mountain View.
The Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet, formed in 1939 and based in St. Petersburg, Russia, honors the rich history of classical music in Russia. The quartet comprises four graduates of the St. Petersburg Conservatory: Mikhail Bondarev and Ekaterina Belisova on violin, Alexei Popov on viola and Anton Andreev on cello.
The quartet performs regularly in festivals and at public and private concerts in Russia, Germany, France, Italy, Finland, Canada, Switzerland and the United States. The group’s repertoire ranges from Russian music of the 19th and early-20th centuries to contemporary composers.
The musicians share a background steeped in the tradition of Russian music, making and perform interpretations of a diverse repertoire of masterworks, Russian classics and contemporary composers. The evening’s program will include works from Sergei Rachmaninov, Samuel Barber and Alexander Gretchaninov.
The performance is part of CSMA’s 2017-2018 Community Concert Series. A grant from the Applied Materials Foundation supports the series.
Admission is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so attendees should plan to arrive early. Doors open at 7 p.m.
