The Skride Piano Quartet is made up of four outstanding musicians who have each achieved success as a soloist at the highest levels. Violinist Baiba Skride’s natural approach to her music-making has endeared her to some of today’s most important conductors and orchestras worldwide. Lise Bertahaud is unanimously praised as an outstanding violist on the international music scene. Twenty-six year-old Harriet Krijgh is one of today’s most exciting and promising young cellists. Pianist Lauma Skride‘s playing is “wonderfully sensitive, with marvelous tone quality, and always with highly virtuosic vigor,” according to a review by the Bavarian Broadcasting Service.We rarely get to hear a program of piano quartets and the Brahms G Minor with its "gypsy rondo" finale is guaranteed to bring the house down.
