Rucner String Quartet celebrates its 15th anniversary

To write a biography of the Rucner String Quartet, which celebrates its 15th anniversary with this set of compact discs, means, first of all, to go 35 years back in the past, when life and professional path brought together Snježana and Dragan Rucner, a musician couple, founders of the Rucner String Quartet (1998). […] Violinists Jože Haluza and Josip Novosel, members of the first lineup of the Quartet, helped the Rucner couple realize the idea of enlivening Croatian music culture with an ensemble slightly different than others by its artistic characteristics, which will enrich the music scene with its repertoire in an, until then, unusual way. The fact that they have succeeded is confirmed by the fifteen extremely fruitful years – both content-wise, and regarding the number of concerts. […] Encouraging Croatian composers to write new pieces for string quartets or chamber ensembles reached in these fifteen years the impressive number of around eighty new works, and composers of all generations and stylistic tendencies have composed for the quartet. Truly, there is almost no Croatian composer that did not dedicate one of his or her pieces to the ensemble, and thus rehearse a first performance in the Rucner family house, in the picturesque Rim street in Zagreb. This part of their activity certainly deserves special attention and enters the annals of the development of Croatian chamber music from the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st century, inscribed with capital letters thanks to their care for enriching the repertoire and the overall fundus of contemporary music production, not only for string quartet, but also for extended chamber ensembles in which, together with a quartet, other instrumentalists, soloists, ensembles and even singers participate..“
