The St. Lawrence String Quartet has a particular passion for Haydn, and they want to share it with the world. Yet the father of the string quartet is too often regarded today as an opening act; pleasant music before the meat of the program. So the Quartet has created Haydn Discovery: events that delve in a particular Haydn quartet with virtuosic performance and a commentary rich in wit.
Leading each Discovery is the Quartet’s first violinist Geoff Nuttall, called “chamber music’s Jon Stewart” by The New York Times.About Banff Centre International String Quartet Festival
