The Calidore Quartet brings its “irrepressible dramatic instinct” (New York Times) to a program of soulful Russian music, joined by pianist, Andrew Russo, and Artistic Directors, Aaron Wunsch and Julia Bruskin. Bask in the overflowing romanticism of Tchaikovsky, wonder at the dazzling virtuosity of Prokofiev and Stravinsky, and feel the searing emotional intensity of Shostakovich.
