    At the Banff Centre for Arts, idyllically situated in Canada’s Rocky Mountains, the Rolston String Quartet was born in 2013 when two graduates of the Glenn Gould School of Music joined with two other students to form an ensemble, taking their name from the founder of the Institute, the violinist Thomas Rolston. Three years later, in 2016, the four won the acclaimed Banff International String Quartet Competition and began their brilliant career, which by now has taken them across North America, Europe, and Israel, with performances at New York’s Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and even in the historic castle of Prince Esterházy in Eisenstadt. Since the fall of 2017 they have been associated as quartet-in-residence with the Yale School of Music. The Rolston String Quartet will now make its debut in Lucerne with Debussy’s elegant String Quartet – and with Tchaikovsky’s first contribution to the genre, whose famous Andante cantabile moved the writer Leo Tolstoy to tears.
