Aizuri Quartet (Ariana Kim, violin; Miho Saegusa, violin; Ayane Kozasa, viola; Karen Ouzounian, cello)

In their Houston debut, the Aizuri Quartet explores a stunning range of music composed in times of intense isolation – from the medieval and Renaissance, to Haydn and Beethoven, to the American Conlon Nancarrow, whose third quartet was written when he was an expatriate in Mexico in 1987. 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 at the 2018 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition and their first recording was nominated for a 2019 Grammy Award.
