For its PCMS return, the Aizuri offers a soulful and beautiful collection of songs from diverse time periods, traditions, and styles arranged for quartet. Celebrating music as the most direct mode of human expression, this inventive program includes a suite of works by Komitas (Armenian folk songs), Rhiannon Giddens, and Florence Price, plus a new work featuring Aizuri cellist Karen Ouzounian on vocals.
