The Ariel Quartet gave us an exuberant evening of quartet playing in 2018-19, replacing an ailing Juilliard Quartet at short notice. Celebrating their 20th anniversary this season, the ensemble is “gifted with utter musicality and remarkable interpretive power” (American Record Guide) offers “a blazing, larger-than-life performance” (Washington Post).
