Aizuri Quartet (Back Room) 

When: Fri., Feb. 17, 6:30 p.m. 2017
Price: $15

Fresh off a two-year residency at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, the New York-based Aizuri Quartet visits the Triangle for a few days of teaching and performances. The ensemble's name comes from an especially intricate and vibrant style of predominantly blue Japanese woodblock prints, an apt comparison for this young quartet's sound. For Thursday's show, part of N.C. State's Arts NOW Series, the group will perform a handful of recent works, including the premiere of a new string quartet by N.C. State professor Peter Askim, whose writing for strings is fluid and expressive. The next day, the Aizuri arrives in Carrboro for the latest installment of Jennifer Curtis's Overtone Series, where they'll mix Beethoven, Mendelssohn, and Webern with Curtis's own "Moon in the Sand" for violin and mandolin. Shows in the Overtone Series always have a pleasantly loose feel to them, like a group of friends jamming on the porch. —Dan Ruccia
