The Ariel Quartet's CCM Concert Series Continues on Jan. 27

The internationally acclaimed Ariel Quartet continues its concert series at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) on Tuesday, Jan. 27, with a performance featuring works by Schubert, Stravinsky and Schulhoff. Tickets for this performance are on sale now.

The Ariel Quartet is comprised of Alexandra Kazovsky, violin; Amit Even-Tov, cello; Gershon Gerchikov, violin; and Jan Grüning, viola. The Quartet was formed in Israel 16 years ago when its members were young students, and they have been playing together ever since. Recently awarded the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, the Quartet serves as the string quartet-in-residence at CCM, where they direct the chamber music program and perform their own annual series of concerts – a remarkable achievement for an ensemble so young.

Last season, the Quartet performed its first complete Beethoven Cycle at CCM, a feat that the

Cincinnati Enquirer

's Janelle Gelfand characterized as "a challenge like climbing Mount Everest, and you could only marvel at their musicianship each step of the way." You can watch excerpts from last season's concert series by visiting

"The Cycle" proved so popular that the Ariel Quartet was invited to perform another complete cycle of Beethoven's string quartets for New York City audiences at the SubCulture music venue on Bleeker Street.

Last month, the

Wall Street Journal

's Barrymore Laurence Scherer praised the Quartet members for their "vigorous aplomb" and their "palpable

joie de vivre

born of understanding and affection for the works channeled through their own consummate musicianship."
