Sea to Sea

To celebrate their 20th Anniversary, the St. Lawrence String Quartet decided to celebrate their Canadian roots, and solicited calls for proposals of new works from Canadian composers. Out of this, five compositions were chosen and commissioned representing string quartet writing from across Canada – literally from sea to sea.

“As I recall,” says Leslie Robertson of the St. Lawrence String Quartet, “there were close to 90 submissions – and most of the names were new to us. This was perhaps the most exciting part of the process. Over the last 20 years, we have had the great privilege of working with some of Canada’s most respected and renowned composers. Now it was time, through a 20th anniversary commissioning project, to discover a new generation of Canadian composers. To hold in our hands such a body of work from Canadians, coast to coast, was tremendously inspiring.”
