Violinist Geoff Nuttall began playing the violin at the age of eight after moving to London, Ontario, from College Station, Texas. He spent most of his musical studies under the tutelage of Lorand Fenyves at the Banff Centre, the University of Western Ontario, and the University of Toronto, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree. In 1989 he co-founded the St Lawrence String Quartet, as first violinist of which he has performed over seventeen hundred concerts throughout North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia, with a number of acclaimed recordings.

In 2005 he performed Gyorgy Kurtag’s Kafka Fragments for soprano and violin in Carnegie’s Zankel Hall with Dawn Upshaw, staged by Peter Sellars. He returned to Zankel Hall in 2006 to perform at the In Your Ear Too Festival, performing works for solo violin by Biber and a newly commissioned work by Chris Paul Harman.

With the St Lawrence Quartet, Geoff Nuttall served as Graduate Ensemble-in-Residence at the Juilliard School, Yale University, and Hartt School of Music, acting as teaching assistants to the Juilliard, Tokyo, and Emerson String Quartets, respectively. He is now on faculty at Stanford University, where the St Lawrence Quartet has been Ensemble-in-Residence since 1999, and can also be heard on a Naxos American Classics CD entitled Miracles and Mud (Naxos 8.559342), featuring works by Jonathan Berger. He makes his home in the Bay Area of San Francisco with his wife, violinist Livia Sohn.
