This event is expired.
Mill Valley Chamber Music Society, in partnership with the Bay Area Music Consortium, presents the Aizuri Quartet. The award-winning New York City-based quartet will perform on Sunday March 8, 2020 at Mt. Tamalpais United Methodist Church in Mill Valley.
Through its engaging and thought-provoking programs, branded by The New York Times as “genuinely exciting” and “imaginative,” the all-woman Aizuri Quartet has garnered critical acclaim for bringing “a technical bravado and emotional power” to bold new commissions, and for its “flawless” (San Diego Union-Tribune) performances of the great masterpieces of the past. In the 2019-20 season the group (Emma Frucht and Miho Saegusa, violins; Ayane Kozasa, viola; and Karen Ouzounian, cello) will tour extensively across North America including four concerts in the Bay Area presented by the Bay Area Music Consortium.
Formed in 2012 and combining four distinctive musical personalities into a unique collective, 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 released by New Amsterdam Records and nominated for a 2019 GRAMMY Award.
