“Making its American debut, the Skride Quartet tackled its chosen repertoire with a level of assuredness that made one forget that this is such a young ensemble.” --- bachtrack.com
The Skride Piano Quartet is relatively new to the chamber music scene, having formed in 2016. Despite their newcomer status, they have already made such a splash that they have been invited to perform in the famous concert halls of Vienna, Hamburg, Essen, and Riga and made their North American debut at Tanglewood in August, 2018. Sisters Baiba (violin) and Lauma (piano) Skride, Lise Berthaud (viola), and Victor Julien-Laferrière (cello) are internationally renowned soloists in addition to performing as an ensemble, and they combine their individual experiences in such a way that the group is commended for its refreshing interpretations, musical sensitivity, and delight with which it approaches the repertoire. The Skride will perform the Adagio and Rondo Concertante in F Major, D. 487 by Schubert; Piano Quartet No. 3 in B minor, Op. 3 by Mendelssohn; and Piano Quartet No. 1 in D Major, Op. 16 by Enescu.
