Texas Performing Arts presents Aizuri Quartet: The Art of Translation
Formed in 2012 and combining four distinctive musical personalities into a powerful collective, the Aizuri Quartet draws its name from “aizuri-e,” a style of predominantly blue Japanese woodblock printing that is noted for its vibrancy and incredible detail. They have established a unique position within today’s musical landscape, infusing all its music-making with infectious energy, joy and warmth, cultivating curiosity in listeners, and inviting audiences into the concert experience through its innovative programming, and the depth and fire of its performances.
In this special program, works by Franz Schubert and pieces by some of today’s most compelling new voices, the group explores the highly personal and expressive ways in which composers transform visual art and poetry into music and consider the dynamic nature of art.
The quartet will also perform a special family program at KMFA’s Draylen Mason Studio on March 5 at 1 pm.
