Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Chamber music takes an important place among the compositions by Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky, who tried to solve the same dramaturgic tasks in his chamber works as those he faced in the symphonic and theatrical ones. Composed in different periods of his life, these chamber pieces reflect the evolution of Tchaikovsky's style, and are tightly connected with the stage and orchestra compositions of the time The Borodin Quartet is not just an outstanding ensemble but an artistic tradition of 20th-century music, formed in 1944 as a student ensemble in the class of Mikhail Terian, a professor of the Moscow Conservatory and a remarkable viola player and conductor.
