Borodin Quartet


To call the Borodin Quartet legendary is to state a simple fact – and with an unbroken eight-decade performing tradition, the Borodins are without equal as interpreters of Russian music.

Founded in Moscow in 1945 as the Moscow Conservatoire Quartet, the quartet was one of the Soviet Union's best known in the West during the Cold War era - performing at the funerals of both Joseph Stalin and Sergei Prokofiev, who died on the same day in 1953 - and the quartet had a close relationship with composer Dmitri Shostakovich, who personally consulted them on each of his quartets.

In 1955 the quartet was renamed after Alexander Borodin and their interpretation of his work is self-recommending but their Beethoven and Haydn, too, comes with unparalleled insight and authority. These masterpieces make for an utterly compelling programme from one of the most supreme chamber ensembles of all time.

Although it has seen many personnel changes in its lifespan, all quartet members have been graduates of the Moscow Conservatory. The current line-up is Nikolai Sachenko (concertmaster of the State Symphony Orchestra ’Novaya Rossiya’), Sergei Lomovsky (Ancona Grand Prix winner), Igor Naidin (founder member of the multi-international award-winning Quartetto Russo) and Vladimir Balshin (special prize winner at the International Cello Competition in Paris).
