The Ruisi Quartet makes its recording debut on Pentatone with Big House, bringing together music by Matthew Locke, Joseph Haydn and Oliver Leith. Spanning nearly four centuries, this combination of composers establishes a harmonious as well as dissonant relationship between past, present and future. Celebrated for their deeply engaging performances of early repertoire alongside championing progressive new music, the critically-acclaimed Ruisi Quartet has established an international reputation as a charismatic and expressive young ensemble.


The Ruisis unify the program with gorgeous, historically informed playing – delicately shaded and minimally vibrated, yet warm and welcoming. The new commission, Oliver Leith’s Big House, melts the harmonic language of his forebears to uneasy effect.
