Since forming in 1972, the Brodsky Quartet have performed over 3,500 concerts on the major stages of the world and have released more than 70 recordings and are regular performers in Ludlow. Through a variety of associations with other artists the quartet maintains a prominent presence on the international chamber music scene such as this one with the versatile British pianist Danny Driver.
The Brodsky Quartet have always had a busy recording career and currently enjoy an exclusive and fruitful relationship with Chandos Records. Releases on the label include a live recording of the complete Shostakovich cycle as well as quartets and quintets by Brahms, Elgar, Janacek, Debussy and more, with a stellar line-up of fellow musicians. Their set of the Late String Quartets of Beethoven was released in 2020 to great critical acclaim and one of their most recent releases, Homage to Bach, comprises the phenomenal premiere recordings of Bach’s three Solo Violin Sonatas arranged by Paul Cassidy. The Quartet marked their 50th anniversary with three diverse releases: the hugely celebrated Schubert Quintet with cellist Laura van der Heijden, Rocking Horse Road with long-term collaborator Jacqui Dankworth and Golden Oldies, a compendium of encores arranged by the Quartet in celebration of this milestone.
