In recent years, chamber music has been combined without complexity with “more modern” or “different sounding” material. The combination of strings with marimba, a percussion instrument not only used in classical music but also in folk music, cannot be called other than exceptional. It is like cross-pollination between two different musical worlds.
Lin Chin Cheng, his colleague marimba player Ludwig Albert and the musicians of the Ruby Sky String Quintet accept the challenge, bringing the program "Passionate Russia" (2017-2020).
Musicians of the RUBY SKY STRING QUINTET :
- Yuliya Rubina, violin
- Fedor Kabelskii, violin
- Oleg Bagisnkiy, viola
- Elena Kirdyaeva, cello
- Vladimir Dranitsa, bass
