Founded by experienced chamber musicians steeped in the standards and style of the classic Russian school, the Kopelman Quartet carries forward a rich inheritance of technical excellence, lyricism, grace and musical integrity.

Mikhail Kopelman, Boris Kuschnir, Igor Sulyga and Mikhail Milman all graduated from the Moscow Conservatoire in the 1970s, this institution's golden age, when the students regularly worked with musicians and teachers such as David Oistrakh, Boris Belenky, Yuri Yankelevich, Fyodor Druzhinin, Dmitri Shostakovich, Mstislav Rostropovich and Natalia Gutman. These strong musical influences have remained with the members of the Kopelman Quartet, even though they pursued individual careers for twenty-five years before founding the quartet in 2002.

Elizaveta Kopelman was born in Moscow in 1974 into a family of musicians. She studied at the Central School of Music with Dina Parakhina and then in the UK with Arnaldo Cohen at the Royal Northern College of Music, where she won numerous prizes and awards. In the past few years she has performed extensively throughout the US, Europe and the Middle East and also performs regularly with her father, violinist Mikhail Kopelman.
