The New Orford String Quartet and The Annex String Quartet are two Canadian string quartets that hail from mostly Toronto. A string quartet is made up of four stringed instruments: two violins, a viola and a cello. String quartets are beloved for their depth of sound and flexibility, as you can hear below where we hear both Classical Beethoven and Latin Rodriguez!
