Rastrelli Cello Quartet
The Rastrelli Cello Quartet was formed in 2002 with a mission to perform music “between the genres.” Their widely varied programs comfortably mix works by Bach, Saint-Saëns and Tchaikovsky with that of George Gershwin, Dave Brubeck and Leroy Anderson. The name of the Quartet is taken from the eighteenth-century Italian architect Bartholomew Rastrelli, who designed the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, one of the most famous architectural gems in the world.
