Skride Piano Quartet Makes US Debut
The Skride Piano Quartet is made up of four stellar soloists who have each achieved success at the highest levels. The Quartet made its North American debut last month in a tour that included performances in New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. Comprised of violinist Baiba Skride, violist Lise Berthaud, cellist Harriet Krijgh, and pianist Lauma Skride, the members of the Quartet relished their role together as a group on tour. Their debut album, due out April 12 on Orfeo, includes some of the most recognizable piano quartets of the classical literature – Mozart and Brahms – as well as the fascinating quartet movement by Gustav Mahler.
The Skride Piano Quartet returns to North America for tours in February 2020 and February 2021, with select dates remaining on both of these tours.
