A singularly unique ensemble, the Rastrelli Cello Quartet has been thrilling audiences with its renderings of nontraditional programming since 2002. Kira Kraftzoff, founder and artistic director, Kirill Timofeev, Misha Degtjareff and Sergio Drabkin formed the ensemble with a mission to perform music "between the genres," and their widely varied programs mix comfortably works by Bach, Saint-Saens and Tchaikovsky with that of George Gershwin, Dave Brubeck and Leroy Anderson. The name of the quartet is taken from the 18th-century architect Bartholomew Rastrelli, who designed the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the home city of three of the four quartet members. The Rastrelli Quartet currently has five recordings (Rastrelli, Volumes 1-5) on the Solo Musica, TonArt and Manchester labels, as well as a 2008 release with music by Piazzolla titled "Cello in Buenos-Aires." In 2009, the Rastrelli Quartet's CD Cello in Classic was nominated for a Russian Grammy and was given a second prize award.
