St. Lawrence String Quartet–Chamber Series Concert

St. Lawrence String Quartet 2013-2014

Saturday, February 15, 2014
Buckley Recital Hall - 8:00 pm

The award-winning St. Lawrence String Quartet has built its reputation as one of the world’s premier string quartets by performing with vivid color and exceptional team- work. Described by The Washington Post as “fearless musicians whose spontaneity stretches past conventional interpretation and probes the music’s imaginative limits,” the ensemble is lauded for its warmth, precision and vibrancy. Returning to Amherst after many years away, the St. Lawrence String Quartet will perform an innovative program of Beethoven, Britten and Verdi.

The St. Lawrence are remarkable not simply for the quality of their music making, exalted as it is, but for the joy they take in the act of connection.—The New Yorker
