Luri Lee and Jeffrey Dyrda, violin; Hezekiah Leung, viola; Jonathan Lo, cello
“What great jubilance and exuberance these fresh-faced players radiated, and what a thrilling cohesion of phrasing and tone,” raves the Broad Street Review of the Rolston String Quartet. In 2016 the quartet won First Prize in the Banff International String Quartet Competition, in addition to garnering the Grand Prize in the Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, winning the 2016 Astral National Auditions, and taking home prizes at both the inaugural M-Prize Competition and the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition. Currently the Graduate Quartet-in-Residence at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, the Rolston has also participated in residencies and fellowships at the Aspen Music Festival, Banff Centre, Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, and Yehudi Menuhin Chamber Music Festival, among others. Their collaborations include such renowned artists as Cho-Liang Lin, Jon Kimura Parker, Barry Shiffman, and Miguel da Silva, and composers John Luther Adams and Brian Current.
