“Modern,” “dramatic,” “superb,” “wickedly attentive,” “with a hint of rock ‘n roll energy” are just a few ways critics describe the musical phenomenon that is the St. Lawrence String Quartet (SLSQ). The SLSQ is renowned for the intensity of its performances, its breadth of repertoire, and its commitment to concert experiences that are at once intellectually exciting and emotionally alive.
Recent highlights include performances with Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic and Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony in John Adams’s Absolute Jest for string quartet and orchestra, and the European premieres of Adams’s second string quartet. According to The New Yorker, “…no other North American quartet plays the music of Haydn with more intelligence, expressivity, and force…”
MITM enjoys a relationship with the SLSQ that stretches back over 30 years. We are thrilled they are coming to open our celebratory 35th Anniversary Season!
