“These are fearless musicians whose spontaneity stretches past conventional interpretation and probes the music’s imaginative limits.” - The Washington Post
One of the greatest string quartets performing today, the St. Lawrence String Quartet earned international recognition within a few years of its establishment (1989), winning both the Banff Quartet Competition and the Young Concert Artists Competition in 1992. The ensemble (Geoff Nuttall, violin; Owen Dalby, violin; Lesley Robertson, viola; Christopher Costanza, cello) has built a reputation for imaginative and spontaneous music-making and is committed not only to the great quartet literature but also to championing new works. In addition to performing regularly worldwide, the quartet has established an ongoing residency at Spoleto Festival USA and is also the ensemble in residence at Stanford University. They will be performing the String Quartet in D minor, Op. 56 “Intimate Voices” by Sibelius; selections from “John’s Book of Alleged Dances” by John Adams; and String Quartet No. 3 in E-flat minor, Op. 30, by Tchaikovsky.
