Characterized by their youth, brilliant technique, and soulful interpretations, the Ariel String Quartet has quickly earned a glowing international reputation. Recently awarded the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, the talented musicians made their Carnegie Hall debut to a sold-out audience and were praised by The New York Times for their “full-blooded, dynamic playing.” In their Ovations debut, the quartet is joined by pianist Navah Perlman, known for a lyrical eloquence that has established her as one of the most poetic and admired pianists of her generation. Their program will include works by Mozart, Bartok, Schumann and Brahms.
