About New Orford String Quartet, Cho-Liang Lin and Orion Weiss
Four like-minded musicians formed the New Orford String Quartet five years ago with the goal of developing a new model for a touring string quartet. Their concept – to bring four elite orchestral leaders together on a regular basis over many years to perform chamber music at the highest level – has resulted in a quartet that maintains a remarkably fresh perspective while bringing a palpable sense of joy to each performance. The Toronto Star has described this outcome as “nothing short of electrifying.”
The Quartet is joined by international soloists Cho-Liang Lin and Orion Weiss for a performance of Chausson’s Concerto for Piano, Violin & String Quartet.
