ARIEL QUARTET - Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - 7:00PM
“If the gold medal goes to the group that made me jump up and down in my seat, Ariel wins handily...With each piece, they stretched the musical fabric, seeking opportunities to unleash dance rhythms, vaulting dynamic shift, and dramatic stops and starts. And they wrapped everything in a big burnished string sound of near-orchestral richness.”

Founded in 2002, the group’s rotating combinations of virtuoso players and rising stars creates riveting performances of both the standard classical music repertoire and works by African-American composers.
