Terem Quartet

about the ensemble

Expanding all the possibilities of their instruments, using innate musical flair, these Musicians with a capital letter play in such a way that the sky in the stars opens before you.

(Leidsch Dagblad)

Terem Quartet has raised Russian folk instruments to unprecedented heights. Its astonishing virtuosity, breathtaking execution, awe-inspiring artistry and original musical arrangements have made the Quartet a symbol of St. Petersburg.

An Ensemble, in which each musician is simultaneously a composer, arranger and improviser but where the music is crafted by their joint creativity. The repertoire includes over 500 pieces – original transcriptions and paradoxical fantasies based on popular themes from classical and modern music as well as folklore, jazz and soundtracks from famous films.

Russian art and the development of its oldest traditions provide the source for Terem Quartet’s creativity. That’s why the Quartet has represented Russia in front of the planet’s most famous people – the Pope and Mother
Teresa at Vatican, at St. James’ Palace upon the invitation of Prince Charles, at the G8 leaders at the summit in St. Petersburg. The Quartet is a permanent guest and participant of culture programs of the most significant world events: Olympic games in Barcelona, Vancouver, London, Sochi; the Eurovision Song Contest; the FIFA World Cup in Rio de Janeiro; The Formula 1 World Drivers’ Championship.

They performed on world’s premiere stages: the Queen Elizabeth Hall (London, England), Olympia Hall (Paris, France), Théâtre du Châtelet (Paris,
France), La salle Gaveau (Paris, France), Alte Oper (Frankfurt, Germany), Conservatory G. Verdi (Tourin, Italy), Vigado Concert Hall (Budapest, Hungary), the Royal Concertgebouw (Amsterdam, The Netherlands),
Warsaw National Philharmonic (Warsaw, Poland), Opera Theatre (Bruges, Belgium), Bombay Opera Theatre (Bombay, India), Kaufman Hall (New York, USA), The Grand Kremlin Palace (Moscow, Russia) and many others.

The Music of Terem Quartet is passionate, lively, a resounding chord of the Russian soul. The musicians have overturned ideas of modern concert music-making, bringing their own brand of theatre and establishing an
incredible dialogue with the audience. The creation of music for the XXI century – positive, energetic, bringing joy and love, changing the world for the better – is one of the fundamental undertakings of Terem Quartet.
