Russian Quatto

The third concert of the North Platte Concert Association’s current season on Wednesday, Feb. 22 will feature Russian Quattro -- a renowned string ensemble with two cellists and two violinists.

The show will start at 7:30 p.m. at the downtown Neville Center for the Performing Arts, also known as the old Fox Theater and the community playhouse.

Russian Quattro was formed by two members of the famous Rastrelli Cello Quartet. The group successfully toured the the Midwest three times between 2007-12.

Kira Kraftzoff, the leader of Rastrelli, and Sergio Drabkine, who did all the arrangements for Rastrelli, put together this group, which includes themselves and two violinists, Michael Makarov and Vladislav Pesin.

Their varied program are expected to include classical pieces by Tschaikowsky, Saent-Saens, Vivaldi, and Mozart, as well as music by Handy, Gershwin, Joplin, and other popular composers.

In regard to Russian Quattro, a representative of the Nantucket Arts Council wrote, “What a concert! One of the best we ever presented in our series.”

A reviewer in the Barrie Examiner in Ontario, Canada wrote that the four musicians could sound like a classical symphony one moment and play ragtime, jazz or even polka the next.

Admission is with season membership in the North Platte Concert Association. Membership can be purchased from the group’s secretary, Pat Hoban, 1412 W. Fourth in North Platte, NE 69101. The phone number is: (308-534-4699). Memberships are $50 for adults and $100 for families. Student memberships are $15.
