Description

Canada’s Rolston String Quartet (Luri Lee, violin, Emily Kruspe, violin, Hezekiah Leung, viola, and Jonathan Lo, cello) returns to Tippet Rise to present this Saturday morning concert beneath the Domo, the acoustically evocative Stone Age structure by Ensamble Studio. Winner of the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition, the quartet will play Joseph Haydn’s String Quartet in G Minor, Op. 74, No. 3, “Rider” and Five Pieces for String Quartet by the Czech composer, Erwin Schulhoff. Of the ensemble, Toronto Concert Reviews said, “Very quickly, they have achieved an elite status among the continent’s finest string quartets.”
