Although still in their early 20’s, the Ariel Quartet (Alexandra Kazovsky and Gershon Gerchikov, violin; Sergey Tarashchansky, viola; Amit Even-Tov, cello) celebrated their 10th Anniversary in 2008. Formed in Israel, the Quartet moved to the United States in 2004 to continue their professional studies and has since rapidly gained the attention of the music world.
The Ariel Quartet has performed extensively in Israel, Europe, and North America, including such venues as the Musée du Louvre in Paris, Kaisersaal in Frankfurt (“a tour de force,” Frankfurter Allgemeine), the Washington Performing Arts Society, Neue Galerie in New York City, and Jordan Hall in Boston. Recent performances include the Corcoran Gallery and the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. In addition to performing the traditional quartet repertoire, the Ariel Quartet regularly collaborates with many Israeli and non-Israeli musicians and composers, including pianist Roman Rabinovich, the Jerusalem String Quartet, Composer Menachem Wiesenberg, pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk, clarinettist Moran Katz , composer Matti Kovler, violist Roger Tapping, and the Zukerman Chamber players.
