Three members of the Rastrelli Quartet were born in St. Petersburg (the fourth member was born in Belarus), and the quartet takes its name from the 18th century architect Bartholomew Rastrelli, who designed the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. A singularly unique ensemble, the Rastrelli has performed in many of Europe’s great concert halls, including the Gasteig Munich, Philharmony Berlin, Konzerthaus Vienna, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Philharmonic Hall St. Petersburg, and Liederhalle Stuttgart, and has recorded seven CD’s.

This concert is being held at Greensboro United Church of Christ, 165 E Craftsbury Rd, Greensboro, VT 05841.
