Ariel Quartet to Receive Cleveland Quartet Award

Ariel QuartetThe stars of Pro Musica Hebraica’s Fall 2012 concert have been selected to receive the Cleveland Quartet Award — one of the most prestigious in the field. Originally formed in Israel, the Ariel Quartet moved to the United States in 2004 to study at the New England Conservatory’s Professional String Quartet Training Program. They have since become one of the most dynamic young string quartets of our day.

The Cleveland Quartet Award is presented at Chamber Music America’s National Conference, held January 16-19, 2014 in New York City. The award is given to a young quartet every two years that has demonstrated they are on their way to establishing a major career. As part of this prize, the Ariel Quartet will be presented in special performances by Carnegie Hall and seven other major chamber music series.
