This unique ensemble, the only one of its kind in Russia,
was founded in 1999 by Alexander Shilo, a well-known Russian contrabass
player and pedagogue.
From the time of its initial performances this young
group has earned the acknowledgement of numerous listeners and exacting
critics. The musicians perform on St. Petersburg’s best stages as
well as in other Russian cities and have toured abroad in Germany,
Poland, and Estonia. Quattrobass’ original repertoire includes arrangements
of classical pieces and works by St. Petersburg composers.
