Moscow String Quartet
Described by Alfred Schnittke as "an extraordinary ensemble that distinguishes itself with refined musical style, an unusually beautiful sound and palette of colors, and a tremendous artistic temperament," the members of the Moscow String Quartet have earned a place among the most distinguished artists of our times. The Moscow String Quartet gained international acclaim after winning the 1978 Leo Weiner International Quartet Competition in Budapest, Hungary. The next year, the quartet triumphed at the International Quartet competition in Evian, France. Since then, the Moscow String Quartet has performed to consistent critical acclaim in the major concert halls of Europe. From 1991-1996, the quartet was in residence at the Lamont School of Music in Denver, and since 1997 has been in residence at the University of Colorado in Denver.
