The exciting young members of the Arod Quartet, based in Paris, first came to international attention when they won first prize at the 2015 Carl Nielsen International Chamber Music Competition and the 2016 ARD International Music Competition. The quartet made its Carnegie Hall debut in April 2019 and has performed at such prestigious venues as the Auditorium of the Louvre and the Philharmonie in Paris, the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, Wigmore Hall in London, the Berliner Philharmonie, the Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, and Oji Hall in Tokyo. The program includes Mozart’s famous “Dissonance” String Quartet no. 19 in C Major; Bartok’s String Quartet No. 1 in A Minor, acknowledged as his first masterpiece; and Ravel’s only string quartet, a staple of the chamber music repertoire.
