They play international concert halls, they champion old Russian works and they premiere new ones. They’re the Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet from St. Petersburg, Russia, hailed by German media for their “powerful romantic sound,” and they’re finishing up a West Coast tour with a concert in Tacoma’s Urban Grace Church this Sunday afternoon.

Fresh from a standing ovation from a near-full house in Benaroya Hall’s recital hall, the quartet will play the Borodin String Quartet no. 1 and Schumann’s Piano Quintet, as well as pieces from “Les Vendredis,” short works by Romantic Russian composers which were played on Friday nights at the St. Petersburg mansion of 19th-century lumber baron, publisher and amateur violist Mitrofan Belaiev.

Quartet members Mikhail Bondarev (violin), Ekaterina Belisova (violin), Alexei Popov (viola) and Anton Andreev (cello) will be joined by guest pianist Svitlana Smaga.

3 p.m. Oct. 21. $28/$25/$10. Urban Grace Church, 902 Market St., Tacoma. 253-272-2184, urbangracetacoma.org
