Skride Quartett

Biography – about the artist.

Baiba Skride, violin
Lise Berthaud, viola
Harriet Krijgh, cello
Lauma Skride, piano

The Skride Quartett is formed by Baiba Skride, Lauma Skride, Harriet Krijgh and Lise Berthaud in autumn 2016. Whilst maintaining their own high profile solo careers, their passion for chamber music unites the four of them. Within a short period of time they have grown into a close-knit chamber ensemble in great demand internationally.

Within two seasons, the Skride Quartett has performed at reputable venues and festivals such as the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Vienna’s Musikverein, Philharmonie Essen, Utrecht Chamber Music Festival, Gstaad Festival, Malmö Chamber Music Festival, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Great Guild Hall Riga, Istanbul Music Festival, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Staatstheater Darmstadt, Sendesaal Bremen and Schloss Thun, amongst others.


In 2018/19, invitations take the Skride Quartet back to Schubertiade Hohenems where they performed their first concert together in autumn 2016, as well as to the Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, Wigmore Hall London, Louvre Paris, and a regional tour in Germany. Further afield, the Quartet looks forward to its debut at the Tanglewood Music Festival in summer 2018 and a US tour in March 2019 which includes performances in New York, Washington, Palm Springs and Oklahoma.

The Skride Quartett anticipates the release of their first disc together for the Orfeo label. Recorded in June 2018, the recording includes quartet repertoire by Mahler, Mozart and Brahms and is scheduled for release in the 18/19 season.

„In the global high-standard performances schedule there is definitely a niche and it would be wonderful for the Skride Quartet to fill it in the coming years.“
