Aizuri Quartet

Formed in 2012 and combining four distinctive musical personalities into a unique collective, the AIZURI QUARTET draws its name from “aizur-e,” a style of predominately blue Japanese woodblock printing that is noted for its vibrancy and incredible detail. The Quartet has received top prizes at string quartet competitions held in Osaka, at London’s Wigmore Hall, and the M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition. In addition they have held residencies at the Ravinia Festival, Curtis Institute of Music, and Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. They have performed extensively throughout North America, Europe, and Japan, and have commissioned and premiered new works by Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw, Paul Wiancko, Lembit Beecher, Gabriella Smith, Rene Orth and others.
