Scott St. John

SSt.JohnScott St. John is a violinist in the St. Lawrence String Quartet and Artist-in-Residence at Stanford University. The SLSQ performs over 100 concerts worldwide every year. The foursome regularly delivers traditional quartet repertoire, but is also fervently committed to performing and expanding the works of living composers. This season sees them performing new works by both John Adams and Osvaldo Golijov.

On the solo side, Scott made his Carnegie debut in 1988 after winning 1st prize in the Alexander Schneider Competition; he has also won the Young Concert Artists Award and an Avery Fisher Career Grant. Concertos and recitals were part of Scott's early professional life, with performances all across Canada, the US, New Zealand and Germany. He is especially proud of a recording produced in Vancouver with pianist Rena Sharon: the disc is entitled "Salon Parisien" and features Poulenc Sonata. More recently Scott and his sister Lara teamed up for a recording of Mozart's Symphonie Concertante with the Knights orchestra.
