The four musicians,
who have been performing as an ensemble since 1990,
have not restricted themselves to a specific style, epoch or composer.
Established jewels from the classic, as well as modern,
jazz style and Latin american music offer the cornerstones of the concerts.
The ensemble consists of representatives of the Russian instrumental
school and prizewinners of various international music competitions.
It is not without reason that the critics comment on the professional
level, the uniformity of emotion from intellectual thinking and feeling
of the musicians, the interpretation, as well as the brilliance of
accomplishment from almost impossible technical hurdles, with which
the works are performed to the public.
The name of the quartett comes from the exceptional first violinist
Michel Gershwin, who received his international recognition in 1988
as grand prize winner of the international "David Oistrach Competition".
After having held positions as concertmaster of the Orchestre de
Opera National de Lyon and the Philharmonischen Orchesters der Oper
Frankfurt, Gershwin has been concentrating on his solo engagements
and as concertmaster of the "Gershwin Quartet".
The quartet has been guests throughout Europe, the USA, Russia,
Brasil, Asia, Dubai, Lebanon and Israel. They have collaborated with
national and international musicians, including Igor Oistrach, Yuri
Bashmet, Giora Feidman, Michel Portal, Mikis Theodorakis, Liana Isakadze,
Elena Bashkirova and Andrej Gavrilov. Guest appearances include many
international festivals including Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival,
Rheingau Music Festival, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Musikfestspiele
Saar, Festival Massenet St. Étienne, Izmir International Festival, Altenburger Musikfestival, Al Bustan Festival Beirut, Royal Mirage Festival Dubai, Music Summer Saas-Fee and Villa Musica.
