4th Concert of the Tartini String Quartet
The Tartini String Quartet consists of the first violin Miran Kolbl, second violin Romeo Drucker, violist Aleksandar Milošev and cellist Miloš Mlejnik. The ensemble started off as the String Quartet of the Slovenian Philharmonic in 1983, when the four heads of the string groups in the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra decided to try out their wealth of technical skills and musical experience in a string quartet, which is considered to be one of the most demanding musical genres. The four string instruments cover a sufficiently broad tonal range and provide a developed harmonic technique, but in terms of sound diversity they cannot offer all the possibilities of a symphony orchestra or other mixed ensemble. This is why composers writing music for string quartets must draw the maximum musical expression from the four instruments making up the quartet. The string quartet is therefore a genre for connoisseurs, which was already the case when its “father”, Joseph Haydn, was still writing them. Marijan Lipovšek and Aleksander Borodin have also played in quartets.
