The Borealis String Quartet is a young, energetic ensemble. Acclaimed for its dynamic performances, passion, and refined musical interpretations, the group, which makes its performance home at the University of British Columbia as Quartet-in-Residence, has delighted audiences and critics alike with the clarity and attack of its playing.

This program will feature Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 11 in F minor, Op. 95, Grieg’s String Quartet in G minor, Op. 27, and String Quartet No. 1 by Okanagan-based composer Imant Raminsh.

Since they first came together in Vancouver in 2000, the Borealis String Quartet has been featured in numerous CBC broadcasts and has delighted audiences in sold out concert halls across the country. The robust skill of these four musicians brings a fresh and vibrant perspective to the chamber music repertoire and makes them a must-see.
