31/01/2008 :: The Razumovsky Ensemble aims to provide exceptional music by choosing different world-class solo musicians who share a passion for chamber music. Founder and artistic director, Ukrainian-born cellist Oleg Kogan, has put together a string quartet who will be playing at the Wigmore Hall. It consists of  himself (cello), Henning Kraggerud (violin), Winfried Rademacher (violin) and Lars Anders Tomter (viola).
