The Ruisi Quartet are winners of the Royal Philharmonic Society award for Young British String Players. The quartet has established a reputation as a charismatic and expressive ensemble, delivering performances that are ‘strikingly immediate, committed and direct’ (Chichester Observer, 2014). Founded in 2012 by brothers Alessandro and Max Ruisi, the quartet performs regularly throughout the UK and Europe and was selected as Kirckman Concert Society Artists for 2018/19.
Based in London, the Quartet has given concerts at many leading venues, including the Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, Brighton Dome and Conway Hall, plus appearances in Scotland, Spain, Germany and Austria. Dedicated to continually exploring and developing, the group has studied with a wide-range of leading musicians.
Purcell’s Fantazias, written around 1680, combine dazzling contrapuntal mastery with deep expressiveness and dramatic tension created by their chromaticisms and unpredictable harmonies.
Beethoven’s Op.59 Quartets (1806) were commissioned by Prince Andrey Razumovsky, then Russian ambassador to Vienna. The first three of Beethoven’s middle period quartets, they left both their first performers and the public shocked and suspicious. Now celebrated as mainstream chamber music repertoire, these quartets have a continuing ability to surprise, challenge and inspire us.
This one-hour concert at Elmslie House is excluded from the six-concert subscription.
