  • Tom Morrison: Sea Change for String Quartet (2018)
  • Eleanor Alberga: String Quartet No. 1 (1993
  • Beethoven: String Quartet No. 12 in E-flat Major, op. 127

The four amazing young musicians’ previous appearance on our stage four seasons ago was a huge success! They return to our chamber music series in the midst of burgeoning fame, including a 2019 Grammy nomination for the ensemble’s debut album, Blueprinting.

Conceived at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute, now based in New York, the Aizuri Quartet was the MetLiveArts String Quartet-in-Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2017-2018. The ensemble embraces the confluence of visual and musical arts and has played at Philadelphia’s Museum of Art and Barnes Institute, Boston’s Gardner Museum, as well as renowned concert venues and festivals around the world. The group’s name refers to “aisurie,” a Japanese method of woodblock printing, mostly in blue, and to the signature planning and attention to detail inherent in both the art form and the group’s musical performance. This is a free concert!
