String quar­tet

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

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.
