      When a conservatoire student yet, back in 1944, Valentin Berlinsky took part in founding a students string quartet, which later affiliated Moscow Philharmonic and in 1955 came to be called Borodins Quartet. Valentin Berlinsky was the only quartet member who played in it from the very first day of its foundation.

The quartet toured in almost all the continents and gave thousands of concerts. Many leading composers dedicated their works to the quartet.
