Performed at Old Cabell Hall, on Grounds at U.Va.

The St. Petersburg Quartet with special guest artist Misha Dichter, piano present works by Schumann, Shostakovich, Borodin & Schulhoff.

The St. Petersburg Quartet is one of the world's most esteemed chamber ensembles. Their rise to fame has included a Grammy nomination, "Best Record" honors in both Stereo Review and Gramophone, an opening night performance at Mostly Mozart at Lincoln Center, a five-year residency at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and hundreds of concerts on many of North America, Europe and Asia's most prestigious series and festivals.

Now in the fifth decade of an illustrious international career, Misha Dichter traces his musical heritage to the two great pianistic traditions of the 20th century: the Russian Romantic School, as personified by Rosina Lhevinne, his mentor at The Juilliard School and the German Classical style that was passed on to him by Aube Tzerko, a pupil of Artur Schnabel. Mr. Dichter exhibits this dual legacy in his solo recitals and appearances with virtually all of the world’s major orchestras, performing the grand virtuoso compositions of Liszt, Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky, as well as music from the central German-Viennese repertoire, which embodies more introspective qualities, such as works by Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms.
