Aizuri String Quartet
March 20, 2022

Aizuri String Quartet

Praised by The Washington Post for “captivating” performances that draw from its notable “meld of intellect, technique and emotions,” the Aizuri Quartet was awarded the Grand Prize and the CAG Management Prize at the 2018 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition, along with top prizes at the 2017 Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan, and the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition in London. The Quartet’s debut album, Blueprinting, featuring new works written for the Aizuri Quartet by five American composers, was nominated for a 2019 GRAMMY Award.  To celebrate the 102nd Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage, as well as Women’s History Month, the four ladies of the Aizuri String Quartet will perform a program of all-female composers dating from Hildegard von Bingen.
