Cancelled – Geoff Nuttall, Livia Sohn, Bernadene Blaha

Due to a family emergency, we are sorry to announce that Geoff Nuttall, Livia Sohn, and Bernadene Blaha will not be able to join us for the planned program later this month. We know you will join us in sending our very best to these valued members of our MITM artist community.
In their place, we are delighted to welcome The Rolston Quartet. The Rolston Quartet’s last visit with us was in 2017, following their first-prize win at the Banff International String Quartet Competition. One of the great young quartets this generation, these early Vancouver performances resulted in raves and standing ovations.

Hailed by the New York Times as “intensely dynamic” with “stunning technique and volatility,” violinist Geoff Nuttall co-founded the St. Lawrence String Quartet (SLSQ). As first violinist, he has performed well over 1,500 concerts throughout North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.  He is on faculty at Stanford University, where the SLSQ has been ensemble-in-residence since 1999.

Hailed by Opus Magazine as “a stunning musician”, violinist Livia Sohn performs widely on the international stage as concerto soloist, recitalist, and festival guest in Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Africa, and New Zealand. The Strad Magazine says “Livia Sohn possesses a remarkably lithe and transparent tone of exceptional purity. [Her] virtually blemishless accounts are nothing short of remarkable. Even when under the most fearsome technical pressure at high velocity, every note rings true with pinpoint accuracy.”

Bernadene Blaha‘s “brilliant command of the piano”, whether featured as recitalist, concerto soloist or chamber musician, has been heralded in performances throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Mexico. Piano and Keyboard magazine has reviewed her as, “a pianist of integrity, with lovely sonorities and total clarity of line.”
