Opening Night welcomes current Grammy nominee, the “genuinely exciting” Aizuri Quartet (New York Times); their program brings together classics by Haydn and Brahms (Piano Quintet) with fresh new music from their Grammy-nominated album: Gabriella Smith’s thrilling and whimsical Carrot Revolution (inspired by both Bach and Simon & Garfunkel) and Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw’s Blueprint, based on a quartet by Beethoven.
