Fortas Chamber Music Concerts: Aizuri Quartet

The all-female Aizuri Quartet draws its name from "aizuri-e," a style of predominantly blue Japanese woodblock printing noted for its vibrancy and incredible detail. The Curtis Institute of Music's current String Quartet-in-Residence carries those same principles into its music, garnering critical acclaim for its explosive combination of depth, refinement, and vigor. The group's Kennedy Center debut includes classic repertoire as well as a brand new composition by multi-talented Grammy winner Caroline Shaw.
