Founded in 2000 in St. Petersburg under the inspiration of Josef Levinson (uncle of CMSFW Artistic Director, Gary Levinson) the prize-winning Atrium Quartet has been described as “A beautifully balanced group with a fine, burnished tone and excellent blend.”  (The Strad)  The group has been highly acclaimed by audiences on five continents.  Members of the quartet are violinists Anton Ilyunin and Sergey Malov, violist, Dmitri Pitulko, and cellist, Anna Gorelova. Specialists in the Quartets of Shostakovich, they introduced the world’s  first Shostakovic Marathon in 2013, performing the cycle of all 15 quartets in one day. The quartet members perform on unique, centuries-old instruments by Italian Luthiers.

The theme for the 2015-16 series is “Unexpected Discoveries.”  Artistic Director, Gary Levinson says of this title:

In the world of the working musician, any work they are preparing for performance, or even just re-learning is a study in discovery.  But how is it for the listener?  In programming this season, my aim was to pair the familiar with the yet undiscoverd while maintaining an equilibium on each program.  Works by Shostakovich, one of the finest composeres for the string quartet in the 20th century, and  Edvard Grieg, the great Norwegian lyricist bookend the Ligeti String Quartet No. 1, a single movement work in 17 contrasting parts.  Ligeti is a composer whose music was banned by the Communists.  In addition to Shostakovich’s battles with the Stalinist regime this is a program of courage and beauty.


The Program:  “Poetry and Industry”

Shostakovich                           Quartet No.4 in D Major, Op. 83

Ligeti                                       String Quartet No. 1, Métamorphoses nocturnes

Grieg                                       String Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 27
