The 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. In 1989 he co-founded the St. Lawrence String Quartet, with which, as first violinist, he has performed well over 2,000 concerts throughout North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. He has received two GRAMMY® nominations for the St. Lawrence Quartet’s recording Yiddishbbuk, a collection of works by the Argentinean-American composer Osvaldo Golijov. Their première recording of Robert Schumann Quartets won a Juno Award, granted by the Canadian Academy for Arts and Sciences for Best Classical Album, as well as the coveted German critics’ award Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik. He is now on faculty at Stanford University, where the St. Lawrence Quartet is ensemble-in-residence.
