A singularly unique ensemble, the Rastrelli Cello Quartet has been thrilling audiences with their renderings of non-traditional programming since 2002 with a mission to perform music "between the genres". Their widely varied programs mix works by Bach, Saint-Saens and Tchaikovsky with that of George Gershwin, Dave Brubeck and Leroy Anderson. These four players show some of the best qualities of the venerated Russian cello tradition, namely lustrous tone combined with soulful expression.
This is the final concert of the season of world-class performers presented by Antelope Valley Community Concerts. The morning following the concert, Monday, April 9, 2018, at 10 AM, the Rastrelli Quartet will present an Arts for Youth program at Lancaster Performing Arts Center. Interested educators are urged to call LPAC box office for information. (661 723-5950)
