Ruisi Quartet Ilminster Arts Centre Listening experiences dont come much better than the charismatic and expressive Ruisi Quartet. This critically acclaimed ensemble of young musicians will be closing Concerts in the Wests 2019 season of classical music concerts in tremendous style when they perform on 15 November at Ilminster Arts Centre. Founded in 2013 by British/Sicilian brothers Alessandro and Max, the Ruisi Quartet is already recognised as one of the UKs leading string quartets of its generation, performing regularly throughout the UK and Europe. Their talents have secured a number of awards including the Royal Philharmonic Society award for Young British String Players and the Kirckman Concert Society Artists award for 2018/19. In addition they were invited on the prestigious Belcea Quartet Young Artists Scheme. The London based group has performed at many leading venues, including the Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, Royal Albert Hall and Conway Hall, as well as further afield in Scotland, Spain, Germany and Austria. The quartet is dedicated to exploring and honing its performances through ongoing studies with leading musicians/conductors, such as cellist/conductor David Watkin (through the Aldeburgh Chamber Music Residency), and with Thomas Adés (IMS Prussia Cove masterclasses). Recent highlights include a tour of Scotland, a debut at St Johns Smith Square in London and live performances on BBC Radio 3. The group is looking forward to making its debut in Moscow, Russia in early 2020. Founder and director of Concerts in the West, Catherine Maddocks, said: Max Ruisi stepped in at the last minute to help us in 2018 and proved a tremendous success with audiences, so we are delighted that he is bringing the Ruisi Quartet to Concerts in the West this year. And of course we are so pleased to welcome back Luba Tunnicliffe who is playing with the Quartet. Max and his fellow musicians will play us out of the 2019 season in fine style with an excellent programme of music. Programme: Britten Three Divertimenti; Haydn String Quartet No 2 in B minor, Op 64; Mendelssohn String Quartet No 2 in A minor, Op 13.
