It’s Friday Musicale’s 128th season, and the musical organization celebrates with this quartet of young, internationally sourced musicians: Valentin Mansurov, Marina Lenau, David Pedraza and Aziz Sapaev. In addition to performing across the globe, violinist Mansurov won first prize in the former USSR’s 14th National String Competition. And if movies from the ’80s (and Olympic doping scandals) have taught us anything, it’s that the Russians are serious as Siberia about contests. Con Brio performs (with spirit!).
11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 5 at Friday Musicale, 645 Oak St., Riverside, free, fridaymusicale.com.
