The Brodsky Quartet is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022, “We like to think we still look young enough for that to be almost unbelievable!” The Brodsky Quartet have over 3000 concerts and more than 60 recordings to their name. A natural curiosity and insatiable desire to explore has propelled the group in many artistic directions and continues to ensure them not only a place at the very forefront of the international chamber music scene but also a rich and varied musical existence. Their energy and craftsmanship have attracted numerous awards and accolades worldwide, while ongoing educational work provides a vehicle for passing on experience and staying in touch with the next generation.
“How has it been 50 years since we started this lifelong journey together? Looking back, I find it wonderful that 10- and 12-year olds were already infused with passion and belief in the longevity that is now playing out. Two of us remain from the beginning, one joined as we turned professional 40 years ago, and our new fourth member has had her own similar path in the endlessly rewarding and fascinating life that is the String Quartet! ” – the Brodsky Quartet
