Praised by the Philadelphia Inquirer as being “in full possession of that most elusive of string quartet qualities: the balance between individual charisma and collective cohesion”, the Aizuri Quartet is a top prizewinner in the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition in London. Currently Quartet-in-Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music, the Aizuri Quartet performs throughout Europe and the Americas. The Aizuri Quartet is passionate about creating diverse points of entry for audiences into the string quartet repertoire and through its engaging and thought-provoking programs.
