Stradivari Anniversary - Aizuri Quartet

The Aizuri Quartet delights with a bold program featuring a soulful, beautiful and surprising collection of songs from diverse time periods, traditions and styles, written and arranged for string quartet. "Elegant, inquisitive," is The New Yorker's comment on this young quartet, noted for concerts with trailblazing, imaginative programming. Commissions range from new arrangements of vocal pieces by Hildegarde von Bingen and Carlo Gesualdo to Shawn Jaeger's we were happy were we, premiered this season. The quartet draws its name from aizuri-e, a style of predominantly blue Japanese wood-block printing notable for its vibrancy and striking detail.
