Based in New York City, the Aizuri Quartet was the 2017-2018 MetLiveArts String Quartet-in-Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where they presented five unique programs throughout the season, leading The New York Times to applaud them as “a quartet of expert collaborators, who cogently traverse a range of repertoire staples and modern works.”

Aizuri formed in 2012, combines four distinctive musical personalities into a unique collective. The Aizuri Quartet draws its name from “aizuri-e,” a style of predominantly blue Japanese woodblock printing that is noted for its vibrancy and incredible detail.

The program will include selections from:

Tom Morrison (b. 1992): Sea Change (2018) 

Eleanor Alberga (b. 1949): String Quartet No. 1 (1993) 

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827): String Quartet No. 12 in E-flat Major, Op. 127 (1825)
