St. Lawrence Quartet & Andrés Diaz, cello

Reynolds Industries Theater


Now among the preeminent quartets in the world, the St. Lawrence has cultivated a global following for its “visceral and passionate” performances that are nevertheless “rooted in a ferocious attention to the details of the score” (Toronto Globe & Mail). At Duke, they will appear with cellist Andrés Díaz, whose “strongly personal interpretive vision” (NY Times) alights here on Schubert’s Quintet in C Major, perhaps the greatest work ever written for this configuration.

PROGRAM:
MENDELSSOHN: String Quartet No. 1 in E-flat Major
PROKOFIEV: String Quartet No. 2 in F Major, Op. 92
SCHUBERT: String Quintet in C Major, D. 956 (with Andrés Díaz, cello)

 

“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.”
—Alex Ross, The New Yorker
