The repertoire of Rusquartet is extensive and diverse; it embraces music of many different styles and epochs. The musicians are actively promoting contemporary composers and rarely performed compositions. The quartet’s programmes include works by Andrei Eshpai, Mikhail Marutaev, Alexander Lokshin, Georges Onslow, Lex van Delden, Kelly-Marie Murphy, Steve Martland, Jonathan Dove and Olli Mustonen. In 2010 Rusquartet performed the world-premiere of Samuel Feinberg’s string quartet in a Moscow Festival devoted to Samuel Feinberg’s 120th anniversary. Dutch composer Louis Andriessen praised Rusquartet when it performed all of his five quartets in 2009 at the Vancouver festival. Rusquartet collaborated with the Borromeo Quartet, Stephen Prutsman (piano), Andrés Díaz (cello), Charles Neidich (clarinet), Philippe Graffin (violin), the Glinka Quartet, Alan R. Kay (clarinet) and Hardy Rittner (piano). Rusquartet’s performances were broadcasted in many countries. The quartet recorded a CD with works by Taneyev and Shebalin. Since 2016 Rusquartet is the string quartet-in-residence at the Orlando Festival (The Netherlands), where they perform a wide variety of quartet repertoire and other chamber music.
