“Highly engaging & superb musicianship”

Fresh from their debut at Carnegie Hall, they were just featured on WQXR.
First Prize winner of the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Rolston String Quartet is storming onto the international classical music scene. As the Calgary Herald notes, the ensemble “chimed the most resonantly with the ideals of perfect quartet playing.” Having formed in 2013, they were the only ensemble to be featured on CBC’s 2016 list of hot Canadian classical musicians under 30. The quartet also won First Prize at the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, Third Prize at the inaugural M-Prize Competition, and the Durosoir Prize at the 2016 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition. Their Performances have taken them throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe and they currently serve as Graduate Quartet-in-Residence at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.


The Rolston String Quartet – Luri Lee (violin), Hezekiah Leung (viola), Jonathan Lo (cello), and new member as of spring 2018 Emily Kruspe (violin) – was formed in the summer of 2013 at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity’s Chamber Music Residency. They take their name from Canadian violinist Thomas Rolston, founder and long-time director of the Music and Sound Programs at the Banff Centre.

Luri Lee plays a Carlo Tononi violin, generously on loan from Shauna Rolston Shaw. Rolston String Quartet is endorsed by Jargar Strings of Denmark.
