About the Rolston String Quartet
The 2018 recipient and first international ensemble chosen for the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award from Chamber Music America, Canada’s Rolston String Quartet continue to receive acclamation and recognition for their musical excellence. In 2016, a monumental year, they earned First Prize win at the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition (BISQC). In that same year, the quartet’s winnings included Astral’s National Auditions and Grand Prize of the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition. They were also prizewinners at the 2016 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition and the inaugural M-Prize competition. This program includes a vivid performance of Steve Reich’s seminal work Different Trains with new video by Spanish multimedia artists, Beatriz Caravaggio.
