Bradley Fuller and Geoff Nuttall (r) in the Sonatas and Soundscapes Studiette at the Dock Street Theatre in Charleston, SC.

On this first episode of Spoleto Backstage for 2021, host Bradley Fuller is joined by Geoff Nuttall, the Charles E. and Andrea L. Volpe Director of Chamber Music for Spoleto Festival USA, to discuss returning to the chamber music series after the cancellation of last year's festival.

Then we hear the first concert from this year's series as the St. Lawrence String Quartet performs Franz Joseph Hayden's String Quartet, op. 76 no. 4 "Sunrise."

The St. Lawrence String Quartet is:

  • Geoff Nuttall, violin;
  • Owen Dalby, violin;
  • Lesley Robertson, viola;
  • Christopher Contanza, cello.

Production of the Chamber Music Series from Spoleto Festival USA is made possible by Bank of America, the ETV Endowment of South Carolina, and the John Covington and Robert Lukey Fund for the Performing Arts.

Originally from Greenwood, SC, Bradley Fuller has maintained a deep interest in classical music since the age of six. With piano lessons throughout grade school and involvement in marching and concert bands on the saxophone, Bradley further developed musical abilities as well as an appreciation for the importance of arts education.
