In this seven-section work, lasting just over an hour, Haydn is at his most reflective. Evoking the last hours of Christ’s life, the work’s individual sections carry tempo markings of Largo, Adagio, Lento, Grave. In this performance, and as it was written, Seven Last Words will be punctuated with readings from the Good Friday service.

At Stanford, the SLSQ is at the forefront of intellectual life on campus. The SLSQ directs the music department's chamber music program, and frequently collaborates with other departments including the Schools of Law, Medicine, Business and Education. The Quartet frequently performs at Stanford Live, hosts an annual chamber music seminar, and runs the Emerging String Quartet Program through which they mentor the next generation of young quartets. In the words of Alex Ross of The New Yorker: "The St. Lawrence are remarkable not simply for the quality of their music making, exalted as it is, but for the joy they take in the act of connection."

Accablés de leurs peurs, hommes et femmes se heurtent dans une tentative  
désespérée de valider leur propre existence. Leurs excès les  
conduisent sur le chemin de la ruine, guidés par leur désir désespéré  
de ressentir quelque chose, de se sentir vivant. Une chorégraphie  
physique et acrobatique empreinte d'une poésie visuelle remarquable.

Tickets will cost between $15 and $28 each. These can be purchased beginning March 1st on the Fesitval website.
