HISTORY

Founded in 1939, the Quartet of Button Accordion Players began their affiliation with the National Philharmonic of Ukraine in 1946. At that time, the group was headed by the founder of the Quartet, the People’s Artist of Ukraine, professor Mykola Rizol. The first members of the Quartet were like a lovely family: during fifty years the Quartet consisted of the two sisters Raisa and Maria Biletskiye and their husbands Mykola Rizol and Ivan Zhuromsky.

Today the Rizol-Quartet represents new generation of musicians. Artists of quartet now are Sergiy GrinchenkoOleg Shiyan, Igor Sayenko and Roman Molochenko.
