...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Popular cellist László Fenyő, professor at the Karlsruhe University of Music, is a regular guest at this year’s Four by Four plus oneseries: whereas in February we can hear him as cellist of the Hungarian Quartet, in March he appears as guest of the Borodin Quartet in Franz Schubert’s evergreen String Quintet in C major. Considered a benchmark of excellence in global string quartet culture, the quartet (established in 1945) are one of the most accomplished representatives of the Russian string tradition. In addition to the above mentioned quintet, there is also a recital of the Viennese composer’s String Quartet Movement in C minor, the opening movement of an unfinished quartet cycle, while the first piece on the programme is the String Quartet No. 2 by Alexander Porfiryevich Borodin after whom the chamber ensemble are named. The highly respected member of The Russian Five, who trained as a chemist, wrote this work to his wife as a gift on the 20th anniversary of their first meeting.
