Description

An exciting new string quartet winning prestigious awards such as the 2016 Banff International Competition, 2017 Yale quartet in residence, and the 2018 Cleveland Quartet Award.  The quartet has already won international acclaim and will certainly continue to astonish audiences all over the world. The Rolston String Quartet is one concert you won't forget.  

Just a taste of the world's response to this quartet:

“[The Rolston String Quartet] chimed the most resonantly with the ideals of perfect quartet playing.”  

                                                                                                                  — Calgary Herald

“A new way of playing music unveiled itself, as young artists caused a true wave of excitement. The young Rolston String Quartet's performance was characterized by a suggestive mood when playing Mozart, Janacek and Beethoven, while exploring the soul of the oeuvre in a differentiating manner..."                                                                                                                    — Musik Meran (Italy)

“the Rolston...who fusion of Classicism and Romanticism might easily have proven problematic for a lesser ensemble, but here was afforded just the right mix of delicate articulation, stormy passion and tender stillness resulting in a hard performance to beat.”                         — Strad Magazine

“an impressive, deeply serious interpretation...highly sensitive, delicately transparent. A musical sound treasure, blissful.”                                                                           — Südwest Press (Germany)

 

“They already belong to a generation of string players performing at a level difficult to imagine in generations past”                                                                                      — Toronto Star
