Borealis String Quartet

Formed in 2000, this Vancouver-based quartet quickly established a reputation as one of the most dynamic and exciting world-class ensembles of its generation, and their performances, including concerts at the Met as well as their 2011 performance at SBMA, became instant sell-outs. Their performance includes Beethoven’s Quartet No.4 in C minor, Op.18, Shostakovich’s Quartet No.9 in E-flat major, Op.117, and String Quartet No.3 by Imant Raminsh. The last piece was written for the Borealis String Quartet and recently had its world premiere at Vernon’s Performing Arts Centre in Canada to great acclaim.
