The Weinberg Quartet has been acclaimed by the international press for its exceptional professional standard, impeccable taste, technical perfection, energy, talent and an uncanny ability to surprise their audiences while remaining true to the stylistic nuances of the music.
One of the most highly acclaimed chamber music ensembles in Russia, the Weinberg Quartet has been active both on the concert stage and in music education for more than twenty years. Originally founded in 2001 under the name Rusquartet, the award-winning quartet has performed on many of the world’s leading stages.

The Weinberg Quartet has participated in international festivals such as the Banff Summer Arts Festival (Canada), CONSONANCES (Saint-Nazaire, France) and the Mecklenburg Music Festival (Germany). They served as the special quartet in residence of the Orlando Festival (the Netherlands) from 2016 until the very last edition (2022), giving countless concerts and coaching many young professional ensembles.

The Weinberg Quartet has shared the stage with many famous musicians at prestigious concert venues, such as the Grand, Small and Rachmaninov Halls of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory, the Moscow Philharmonic and the Moscow International House of Music, Musikverein (Vienna), Essen Philharmonie (Germany), Philharmonie de Paris (France) and Rolston Recital Hall at the Banff Centre (Canada). The Weinberg Quartet has performed in Russia, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, France, Canada, Australia and China. It has released four CDs on the Belgian label Etcetera.
In addition to the classical quartet repertoire, ranging from Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven to Shostakovich, Bartók, Schoenberg and Berg, the Weinberg Quartet actively promotes music by modern composers, often presenting premiere performances. The Weinberg Quartet’s musical treasure trove includes works by composers such as Samuil Feinberg, Mikhail Marutaev, Tomas Korganov, Alexander Lokshin, Lex van Delden, Oscar van Hemel, Louis Andriessen, Kelly-Marie Murphy, Steve Martland, Jonathan Dove and Olli Mustonen. Jonathan Dove’s String Quartet No. 4 ‘How we spent the night’, Alexander Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No. 8 and Vladislav Agafonnikov’s string quartet ‘The Poem’ were composed especially for the Weinberg Quartet.

The members of the Weinberg Quartet have all received training as soloists and are laureates of international competitions. At present, these outstanding musicians serve on the faculty of the Gnessins School and the Tchaikovsky Conservatory.

The Weinberg Quartet organises concerts and educational musical events to support and further develop string quartet playing.
