Concert: Rastrelli Quartet
Where
Yoshi's Jazz Club
Neighborhood
Western Addition/NOPA
When
Tue, Feb 28

A singularly unique ensemble, the Rastrelli Cello Quartet has been thrilling audiences with their renderings of non-traditional programming since 2002. Kira Kraftzoff, Kirill Timofeev, Misha Degtjareff and Sergio Drabkine formed the ensemble with a mission to perform music “between the genres,” and their widely varied programs mix comfortably works by Bach, Saint-Saens and Tchaikovsky with that of George Gershwin, Dave Brubeck and Leroy Anderson.

Nearby and Noteworthy

Grab a cocktail or bite to eat before (or after) your show at Dosa, just a few blocks from Yoshi's.

Sosh

The name of the Quartet is taken from the eighteenth-century architect Bartholomew Rastrelli, who designed the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the home city of three of the four Quartet members.

The Rastrelli have performed in many of Europe’s great concert halls, including the Gasteig in Munich, St. Petersburg’s Philharmonic Hall, Bulgaria Hall Sofia, the Liederhalle Stuttgart and Philharmonic Hall in Minsk. In addition to concert tours in Europe, the USA and Russia, the Rastrelli performs at such summer music festivals as the Beethoven Festival Bonn, Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Darmstadter Festspiele, Oberstdorfer Musiksommer, Hohenlohe Kultursommer, Rheingau Musikfestival, Ohridsko Leto (Macedonia) and the Meadowlark Music Festival.

In addition to its European performances in the musical capitals of Russia, France, Italy, Portugal, Brazil, Ireland and Switzerland, the Quartet embarks in the 2011-12 season on a 28-city tour of the the U.S. midwest, and to prestigious American venues in California and New York, as well as in Puerto Rico.
