The Rossetti String Quartet is renowned for its highly sophisticated, sensual sound and extensive range of colors. The Quartet’s compelling stage presence and fresh, innovative style has won its members a devoted following.

Founded in 1996, the Rossetti String Quartet is named after 19th century Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti, whose artistic ideals about the use of color, poetry, and naturalism are embodied in the Quartet’s musicianship. Each member of the Quartet is an accomplished musical artist in their own right, and the aesthetic depth and insight each brings to the group helps create the intimate, provocative atmosphere that has become the Rossetti trademark.

Rina Dokshitsky
Acclaimed for “playing with ultimate naturalness and considerable charm,” Rina has performed solo recitals in such prestigious concerts halls as the Kennedy Center, Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall, the Isabella Gardner Museum and Jordan Hall in Boston, and the Ruth Ackerd Hall in Florida. Her chamber music engagements have included appearances at such world-renowned festivals as the Spoleto Festivals – USA and Italy, Ravinia Festival, and the Grand Teton Music Festival.

“The Rossetti’s tone had a sensual finish, and its phrasing practically palpitated with ardor and mystery.” –Washington Post

Belgian violinist Joseph Lambert Massart (1811-1892) was a pupil of Rodolphe Kreutzer, the famed French violinist and founding father of the Paris Conservatoire.  Appointed to the faculty of the Paris Conservatoire in 1843, Massart trained many of the most successful violinists of the age, from Henryk Wieniawski to Fritz Kreisler. This concert offers a rare musical panorama of the so-called ‘Franco-Belgian school of violin playing.’
