Shostakovich and Prokofiev String Quartets
Founded by experienced chamber musicians steeped in the standards and style of the classic Russian school, the Kopelman Quartet carries forward a rich inheritance of technical excellence, lyricism, grace and musical integrity. Mikhail Kopelman, Boris Kuschnir, Igor Sulyga and Mikhail Milman all graduated from the Moscow Conservatoire in the 1970's. Even though they pursued individual careers for 25 years, the common roots and background of the musicians enabled the Kopelman Quartet quickly to grow to maturity when they founded the quartet in 2002. This is the first release in a new relationship between the Kopelman Quartet and Nimbus Records.
