Rockin' with the St. Larrys

The St. Lawrence String Quartet performed today in Stanford's brand-new Bing Concert Hall...
Sublime: Haydn Quartet Op. 77 No.1
Ridiculous, but wonderful: Schafer Quartet No. 3
Bombastic, but impressive: Thuille Piano Quintet No. 2 (with Stephen Prutsman, piano)
Encore: Prutsman's arrangement of Joe Zawinul's "Birdland"... I never liked that tune... I still don't.
The SLSQ are thoughtful, passionate, virtuosic, theatrical... If they come to your neighborhood, go hear them play! Here they are performing the rollicking minuet from the Haydn...
