St. Petersburg String Quartet

St. John's Kirk, Perth

“…displayed astonishing sophistication and self-confidence, most notably through subtle dialogue and sure, expressive intonation…”
Washington Post


The St. Petersburg Quartet is one of the world's most esteemed chamber ensembles. Their rise to fame has included a Grammy nomination, “Best Record” honours in both Stereo Review and Gramophone, an opening night performance at Mostly Mozart at Lincoln Center, a five-year residency at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and hundreds of concerts on many of North America, Europe and Asia's most prestigious series and festivals.

In 2009 the St. Petersburg Quartet launched the St. Petersburg International Music Academy, an intensive summer program for students, which they bring to various campuses and festivals in the USA and Mexico. In 2010 St. Petersburg Quartet was appointed the inaugural Quartet in Residence at Wichita State University.
