"energy, insight and warmth..."
- Toronto Star

The Borealis String Quartet’s “intense, focused style of playing” (Calgary Herald) has established them as one of the most dynamic, and exciting, ensembles of its generation. They have received international critical acclaim as an ensemble, praised for its fiery performances, passionate style, and refined, musical interpretation.

The quartet is also frequently heard on CBC Radio and other radio stations across North America and Asia. They have released seven CDs, three of which feature works by Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Grieg, and Respighi. Their first CD, "Classic Borealis" on Skylark Record has garnered international critical acclaim. The Halifax Tribune said, “This is their first CD and it is, frankly, amazing... Their takeovers are pure magic - animated lines passing from violin to viola to cello and back again...seamless.”

Exploring other mediums to share their passion, the Borealis has also created music videos and short films, including Beethoven Opus 59, No.3, which is often broadcast on Bravo Television and Knowledge Network, and was debuted at the Vancouver International Film Festival.

“...combination of superb musicality and impressive technique... Energy-charged, yet still full of nuance, they took the audience on an unforgettable ride.”
