Description: The Grammy-nominated St. Lawrence String Quartet, Stanford’s esteemed quartet-in-residence, launches its series of three Sunday concerts with a program of three strongly profiled, virtuosic works. Beethoven’s five-movement Quartet No. 15 in A Minor is set alongside Haydn’s witty C Major quartet. Leaping to the 20th century, the foursome tackles the “dry and sardonic” John’s Book of Alleged Dances by John Adams.
