About the Ariel Quaret

Characterized by its youth, brilliant playing, and soulful interpretations, the Ariel Quartet (Gershon Gerchikov, violin; Alexandra Kazovsky, violin; Jan Grüning, viola; and Amit Even-Tov, cello) has quickly earned a glowing international reputation. Formed in Israel, the Ariel Quartet, which recently celebrated its 11th anniversary, moved to the United States in 2004 to continue its professional studies. The Grand Prize winners of the 2006 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, they have also been awarded first prize at the international competition “Franz Schubert and The Music Of Modernity” in Graz, Austria (2003). After they won the Székely Prize for their performance of Bartók, as well as the overall third prize at the Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2007, the American Record Guide described the Ariel Quartet as “a consummate ensemble gifted with utter musicality and remarkable interpretive power” and called their performance of Beethoven’s Quartet Op. 132 “the pinnacle of the competition.” Previously the resident ensemble in the New England Conservatory’s prestigious Professional String Quartet Training Program, the group was recently named the official string-quartet-in-residence at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
