The Washington Post hails the members of the St. Lawrence String Quartet as “fearless musicians whose spontaneity stretches past conventional interpretation and probes the music’s imaginative limits.” The Grammy-nominated quartet’s 2021-22 season featured the premiere of Osvaldo Golijov’s string octet Ever Yours, a work designed to foster collaboration between the quartet and four locally-based “solo” string players. Other recent performance highlights include appearances with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony in John Adams’s Absolute Jest for string quartet and orchestra. The quartet has established an ongoing residency at Spoleto Festival USA and since 1998 has served as ensemble-in-residence at Stanford University.
