Established in 1989, the SLSQ came to Music TORONTO in 1992 and continues annually. The SLSQ has developed an undisputed reputation as one of the world’s great ensembles. Called “witty, buoyant, and wickedly attentive” (the Gazette, Montreal), with a “peerless” sense of ensemble (Financial Times, London), the quartet has been the Ensemble-in-Residence at Stanford University since 1998. In 2016-17, the SLSQ toured Italy, Paris, London, and the Netherlands, played a three-concert series at Stanford Live, and paid return visits to Da Camera of Houston, Duke University, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and many others.
