Haydn's Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross 

In this seven-section work, Haydn is at his most reflective. Evoking the last hours of Christ’s life, the work’s individual sections carry tempo markings of Largo, Adagio, Lento, Grave. In this performance by the St. Lawrence String Quartet, and as it was written, Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross will be punctuated with readings from the Good Friday service by the Rev. Dr. Tiffany Steinwert, Dean for Religious Life.

Founded in 1989, the world-acclaimed St. Lawrence String Quartet will mark their 30th anniversary season with three Sunday performances in the Stanford Live 2019–20 season. A cultural cornerstone of Stanford, the SLSQ continues its fabled partnership with the University, directing the Department of Music’s Chamber Music Program, concertizing at Stanford Live, hosting a popular summer seminar, and running the Emerging String Quartet Program.

The Pegasus Physician Writers at Stanford present Between the notes: An evening of music and poetry, a joint venture with the St. Lawrence String Quartet

This year is the 30th anniversary of the SLSQ! Please join us for a festive evening with performances by:

Steve Reich: “Daniel Variations” and “Different Trains” 

The St. Lawrence String Quartet and Chamber Music Seminar faculty Paul Groves and Pedja Muzijevic collaborate for this keynote presentation.

Violinist Geoff Nuttall is joined by cellist Alasdair Tait and pianist Pedja Muzijevic for Haydn’s Hungarian-inspired Piano Trio in A Major. The concert closes with pianist Stephen Prutsman and the St. Lawrence String Quartet performing Dohnányi’s jubilant and exquisitely dramatic Piano Quintet No. 1.

A recent St. Lawrence String Quartet marathon performance of all six Haydn String Quartets Op. 20 was hailed as “in-your-face exhilarating” by the Los Angeles Times. Join the SLSQ for the second of Haydn’s six Op. 20s, along with Henri Duparc’s Three Songs performed by tenor Paul Groves and pianist Stephen Prutsman, and Mozart’s  Piano Quartet No. 1, the first major work composed for piano quartet in the chamber music repertoire, featuring Danish Quartet violinist Frederik Øland, violist Maria Lambros, cellist Michael Kannen, and pianist Pedja Muzijevic.

The St. Lawrence String Quartet are joined by tenor Paul Groves and pianist Laura Dahl for Ralph Vaughan Williams’s song cycle, On Wenlock Edge, followed by Frederik Øland, Owen Dalby, Asbjørn Nørgaard, Maria Lambros, and Michael Kannen performing Mozart’s second “viola quintet,” a stormy work in the brooding key of G minor.
