  • Escher String Quartet

Melodies from Borodin’s Second String Quartet found a second home in the Broadway musical Kismet, tribute to their timelessness.

The Escher String Quartet places the work alongside Shostakovich’s Ninth String Quartet, itself influenced by the famous gallop from Rossini’s William Tell Overture.
