Since its establishment in 1972, the British Budrotsky Quartet has performed more than 3000 performances on major stages in the world and released more than 60 records. The March 2016 issue of the BBC Music magazine once commented on the Budrovski quartet: "... their performance presented a strong shock charm, extremely accurate artistic attainments, and sometimes turbulent and sometimes calm lyrical rhythm...". Sir Willard White, as one of the most popular and versatile opera stars in the past 40 years, often appeared in the most famous opera houses and concert halls around the world, and cooperated with the highest level conductor, artistic director and orchestra. He was awarded the Order of the Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 1995 and was knighted at the Queen's birthday ceremony in 2004. We believe that the cooperation between the Budrotsky Quartet and Sir Willard White will be a very special and exciting performance.
The Budrovski quartet was founded in 1972.
