How fortunate we are to have the St. Lawrence String Quartet in residence at Stanford. Now in its 17th year here, the Canadian ensemble plays a vast range of music with elegance and aplomb, from the classic repertoire to new works written for it by some of the most celebrated composers in contemporary music, among them John Adams and Osvaldo Golijov.
Haydn: String Quartet in C Major, op. 20, no. 2
Vaughan Williams: On Wenlock Edge, for tenor, piano, and string quartet
Rachmaninoff: Four songs for tenor, violin, and piano
