If you missed the suspenseful and exhilarating 2016 Banff International String Quartet Competition, this is your opportunity to hear the first prize-laureates, Canada’s own Rolston String Quartet. This young ensemble, already touring internationally, is quickly attracting attention for "playing with an astonishing harmonic maturity" (Calgary Herald). The Rolston String Quartet will perform Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 3 in D Major, Op. 18, No. 3, Debussy String Quartet in G Minor, and following intermission, joined by veteran pianist Arthur Rowe for the breathtaking Schumann Piano Quintet.
