The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast is pleased to announce that the PMP Alumni: At Home free virtual recital featuring the Ariel Quartet, postponed from January, will be released on February 18, 2021.
The Ariel Quartet
In 2003, The Ariel Quartet was invited by The Perlman Music Program to attend its very first Chamber Music Workshop on Shelter Island, NY. Between 2011 and 2016, the quartet was a frequent visitor to Sarasota and Manatee counties, performing at the Sarasota Opera House, the Venice Performing Arts Center, and other community venues, as well as participating in education outreach programs in local schools.
Hailed by The Washington Post as “…a blazing, larger-than-life performance…” and distinguished by its virtuosity, probing musical insight, and impassioned, fiery performances, the Ariel Quartet has garnered critical praise worldwide over the span of nearly two decades. Formed in Israel as teenagers at the Jerusalem Academy Middle School of Music and Dance and celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2020-21, the Ariel was named recipient of the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, granted by Chamber Music America in recognition of artistic achievement and career support. The ensemble serves as the Faculty Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music, where they direct the chamber-music program and present a concert series in addition to maintaining a busy touring schedule in the United States and abroad.
