The Schumann Quartet brings together three brothers united since early childhood and the violist Liisa Randalu. The excellent understanding between these musicians is the key to the virtuosity and inventiveness that the ensemble displays in each of its concerts. After a three-year residency at the Lincoln Center in New York, the Schumann Quartet collaborates with Sabine Meyer, Menahem Pressler, Andreas Ottensamer and Anna Lucia Richter. Mozart, Shostakovich and Mendelssohn, three of the quartet's best-loved composers, appear together on a recent recording (Lanscapes, 2018) that earned the Schumann Quartet five "Diapasons" and was selected as "Editor's Choice" by the BBC Music Magazine.
