The Atrium Quartet

The Atrium Quartet

This young quartet from St Petersburg Conservatoire rose to international prominence in April 2003 when they won First Prize and the Audience Prize in the London International String Quartet Competition. They had previously come second in the 6th International Competition for performances of string quartets by Shostakovich, held in Moscow. Anyone who was lucky enough to hear them in one of our concerts in Fitzhead in 2004 can vouch that that award was justified. We are therefore delighted to announce their return with another Shostakovich quartet balanced by quartets by Schumann and Schubert.
