CCM String Quartet-in-residence, the Ariel Quartet.

Praised by the Wall Street Journal for its “consummate musicianship,” CCM’s string quartet-in-residence opens its 2018-19 concert series with the music of Mozart, Mendelssohn and Bartók.

The internationally renowned Ariel Quartet opens its 2018-19 concert series at UC’s College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018 in CCM’s Corbett Auditorium.

Featuring Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major, K. 590; Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 5 in E-flat Major, Op. 44, No. 3; and Bartók’s String Quartet No. 4 — this performance is just the beginning of the ensemble’s four-part concert series at CCM! The talented string musicians will hold four concerts at CCM during the 2018-19 season: October 30, January 29 and March 26.

Gramophone Magazine recently praised the Ariel Quartet for the way it conveyed “ferocity without ever seeming to break a sweat” in the ensemble’s debut CD, released on the AVIE label in March. The album showcased Brahms’ String Quartet No. 2 and Bartók’s String Quartet No. 1.

Formed in Israel in 1998, the Ariel Quartet is comprised of Alexandra “Sasha” Kazovsky, violin; Amit Even-Tov, cello; Gershon Gerchikov, violin; and Jan Grüning, viola. It has served as CCM’s string quartet-in-residence since 2012. Complete program information for the ensemble’s 2018-19 season is below.
