Aviv Quartet Presented by Strathmore Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 7:30 PM Mansion
Presented in partnership with the Israeli Embassy
Founded in Israel a decade ago, the prize-winning Aviv String Quartet has won acclaim around the world, from Cape Town to Stockholm and from China to Brazil (as well as here in Washington, New York, and across the U.S.). Their performances reveal “an ensemble that blends potent interpretative skills with technical precision. Every phrase has a purpose in the overall context; every detail emerges as a crucial element in the musical message” (Cleveland Plain Dealer). The quartet will perform works by Schubert, Mendelssohn, and Shostakovich.
