Described as "an important new quartet" by Jodi Levitz, chair of the string department of the San Francisco Conservatory Music, and as "one hell of a string quartet" by composer David Garner, the Lazuli String Quartet has received high accolades in performances throughout the Bay Area.
Formed in 2015 at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the Lazuli String Quartet has been a featured guest ensemble at San Francisco State University, and kicked off the San Francisco Conservatory's 2016-17 season with a performance of Shostakovich's 8th Quartet.
The Lazuli String Quartet's repertoire, which ranges from Haydn to Hamza El Din, reflects the quartet's commitment to presenting great music without historical or geographical boundaries.
