The St. Lawrence Quartet is back on our stage on January 26, 2017! They have been performing on our stage since 1992 and are known world-wide as a very respected quartet.
Geoff Nuttall (violin), Owen Dalby (violin), Lesley Robertson (viola), and Christopher Costanza (cello) all return to perform the following programme this year for our audience:
Haydn – Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 20, No. 1
Jonathan Berger – “Swallow” (2014), written for the SLSQ
Leos Janacek – String Quartet No. 1, “Kreutzer Sonata”
Haydn – Quartet in F Minor, Op. 20, No. 5
The SLSQ is the quartet in residence at Stanford University. For several years the quartet has been involved in a summer Chamber Music Seminar held there. The dates for 2017 are from June 24 to July 2 and applications are being accepted until February 1, 2017. This seminar gives attendees the opportunity to focus on chamber music by working with the SLSQ and special guest teachers.
