St. Lawrence String Quartet & Korine Fujiwara, Composer

St. Lawrence String Quartet

TBA @ Southern Theater

“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.

The Quartet is especially dedicated to the music of Haydn, recording his groundbreaking set of six Op. 20 quartets for a free, universal release online as well as for purchase on compact disc and high quality vinyl. 

At Stanford, SLSQ is at the forefront of intellectual life on campus. It directs the music department’s chamber music program, and frequently collaborates with other departments and runs the Emerging String Quartet Program through which they mentor the next generation of young chamber musicians.

Fujiwara’s commission will be performed on February 18, 2023 by the highly-esteemed St. Lawrence String Quartet. This fifth commission of the season will be set apart by Fujiwara’s striking ability to create solos for all instruments.
