Skride Piano Quartet
Baiba Skride, violin
Lise Berthaud, viola
Harriet Krijgh, cello
Lauma Skride, piano
United by a shared passion for chamber music, the exciting Skride Quartet is made up of four like-minded musicians who have each achieved success as a soloist at the highest level. Latvian violinist Baiba Skride and her pianist sister Lauma have performed together since childhood; they have found enthusiastic partners in French violist Lise Berthaud and Dutch cellist Hariet Krijgh. Stable piano quartets can be short-lived, but this one has been in high demand since its founding three years ago, with engagements from major presenters like Vienna's Musikverein, the Istanbul Music Festival, Wigmore Hall and the Louvre. This "multinational chamber supergroup" (Gramophone) makes its Washington debut in an appealing program of rarities.
