The Ariel Quartet's 2014-15 Concert Series Comes to a Stunning Conclusion on March 31

The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music’s (CCM) internationally-acclaimed string quartet-in-residence the

Ariel Quartet

concludes its 2014–15 concert series at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31, in Corbett Auditorium.

The program will include Joseph Haydn’s String Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 76, No. 4, Béla Bartók’s String Quartet No. 5, Sz. 102 and Johannes Brahms’ String Quartet No. 3 in B-flat Major. Tickets for this performance are on sale now.

Last season, the Quartet performed its first complete Beethoven Cycle in Corbett Auditorium, 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.

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.

This concert will be dedicated to the loving memory of businessman and philanthropist William A. Friedlander. The Friedlanders’ generosity has helped to make the Ariel Quartet’s residency at CCM possible.
