The Aizuri Quartet offers a sampling of Japanese composers who have developed distinct musical voices in different parts of the world. Japanese-Danish performer and composer Kojiro Umezaki, a member of Yo-Yo Ma's Grammy Award–winning Silk Road Ensemble, joins the quartet on shakuhachi—a traditional Japanese bamboo flute—for a fascinating look at the diversity of Japanese music around the globe. Program includes string quartets by Akira Nishimura and Paul Wiancko.
This residency is made possible by the Grace Jarcho Ross and Daniel G. Ross Concert Fund.
Tickets to this event include same-day Museum admission during open hours.
