Malevich Piano Quartet

Every edition of the Orlando Festival features a young ensemble that distinguishes itself from the rest. In 2019 this was the MALEVICH PIANO QUARTET. This ensemble won both the 1st prize and the Gnessin Artistry Prize at the Taneyev Chamber music competition in Moscow in November 2017. In June 2019 they were awarded the 2nd prize at the Chamber Music Competition in Cologne. Later on that year a premiere live recording of the two Piano Quartets by Hans Kox (1930-2019) was made at the Orlando Festival concerts.

The MALEVICH PIANO QUARTET will be performing at two venues in the Netherlands in November 2020: the MuziekHaven in Zaandam on Sunday 1 November at 15:00 and the Limburgzaal of Theater Heerlen on Monday 2 November at 18:30 ánd 20:30. The programme will feature piano quartets by Bohuslav Martinů, Hans Kox and Robert Schumann.
