The critically acclaimed and fast-rising Aizuri Quartet is a "string sisterhood of Juilliard and Curtis graduates—each one a magnificent musician in her own right … Every note the quartet produces is lovingly crafted and savored (The Washington Post). Even their name derives from art: aizuri-e, is a predominantly blue style of Japanese woodblock printing noted for its vibrancy, craft, and beauty. "The Aizuri Quartet … is in full possession of that most elusive of string quartet qualities: the balance between charisma of the individual and cohesion of the collective."—The Philadelphia Inquirer
