The acclaimed Ariel String Quartet made its official debut as a CCM quartet-in-residence before a capacity crowd in UC’s Robert J. Werner Recital Hall last night.

“If the artistry of their playing and the electricity in the hall are any indication, the Ariel has the potential to revive the glory days of the LaSalle Quartet, quartet-in-residence from 1953 to 1988, the last full-time resident quartet at the school,” Janelle Gelfand writes for the Cincinnati Enquirer. You can read her full review here.

“Violinists Gershon Gerchikov and Alexandra Kazovsky, violist Jan Grüning and cellist Amit Even-Tov play with energy, consummate technique and an esprit de corps that bode exceedingly well for CCM and the community,” Mary Ellyn Hutton writes for Music in Cincinnati.

If you missed last evening’s performance, be sure to mark your calendars for Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012. Tickets are still available for the next installment in the Ariel Quartet’s 2012-13 CCM concert series… but they won’t be for long!
