Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society award for young British string players, the Ruisi Quartet is coming to Dumfries tomorrow.
Established in 2012 by half-Sicilian brothers Allesandro and Max Ruisi, they have rapidly gained a reputation for strikingly immediate, committed and direct interpretations of the chamber music repertoire.
The other members of the quartet are viola player LubaTunnicliffe, who also performs with the acclaimed Pelleas Ensemble which visited Music in Dumfries in December, 2017, and violinist Oliver Cave.
The group has studied and worked with some of the world’s most eminent chamber musicians, including Levon Chilingirian and, in the UK, Anthony Marwood and Peter Cropper.
An indication of the quality of the quartet’s music making is the long term loan of a specially made set of matching instruments by Harris and Sheldon of London.
The programme includes works by Stravinsky, Bartok and Beethoven and the concert is at 7.30 pm at St John’s Church, LoversWalk, Dumfries.
Tickets are available on line, at the Midsteeple Box Office and at the door on the night.
Reduced rates for students and accompanied children free.
All are welcome to come and experience what undoubtedly will be a memorable evening of music.
