Chamber Music Masterclass with St. Lawrence String Quartet

"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 Quartet 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.

Established in Toronto in 1989, SLSQ quickly earned acclaim at top international chamber music competitions and was soon playing hundreds of concerts per year worldwide. It established an ongoing residency at Spoleto Festival USA, made prize-winning recordings for EMI of music by Schumann, Tchaikovsky, and Golijov, earning two Grammy nominations and a host of other prizes before being appointed ensemble-in-residence at Stanford University in 1998.

St. Lawrence SQ has performed and given masterclasses at Duke many times, and returns this season to perform of Duke Performances' Chamber Arts Series on December 3, 2022.

This masterclass is presented in association with Duke Performances. Music masterclasses are free and open to the public.
