One of today’s most dazzling rising string quartets, the Grammy Award-nominated Aizuri Quartet makes their first NYC main stage appearance with this concert. Exceptional musicians and imaginative programmers, they open their program with two short arrangements of madrigals by 17th Century composer Barbara Strozzi before the focal point of their concert — the pairing of a Beethoven masterwork with the first string quartet by the remarkable Jamaica-born British composer Eleanor Alberga. A rich and spellbinding work, Alberga describes the quartet as being “inspired by a lecture on physics and the fact that everything — including our own bodies — is essentially made of stardust.” Pairing it with the first of Beethoven’s Late Quartets – a work that marks the beginning of his journey into a transcendental world — allows the listener to experience a major Beethoven chamber work from a completely new perspective, and to hear two works from vastly different places and times, both at the edge of something new.

Concert also available via livestream and available for 72 hours from time of broadcast.

  • Strozzi, L’usignolo (arr. Alex Fortes)
  • Strozzi, L’amante modesto (arr. Alex Fortes)
  • Eleanor Alberga, String Quartet No. 1
  • Beethoven, String Quartet No. 12 in E-flat Major, Op. 127
