International prize-winners Lazarus String Quartet, with young musicians from all corners of the globe, have regularly performed concerts for the the ProQuartet organisation in Paris since 2013.
The Lazarus String Quartet was founded in 2007, by graduates of the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, with the important support of the Pettman Foundation. The four young musicians began with great success both at home and internationally, winning competitions and performing regularly. They performed at important festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe, the Heidelberger Frühling and the Muziktage in Hitzacker.
After their graduation as Chamber Music Masters from the University of Music, Drama and Media Hanover, the quartet now comprises members from all corners of the globe - Mayumi Kanagawa (USA/Japan), Jos Jonker (The Netherlands), Albin Uusijärvi (Sweden), and Alice Gott (New Zealand).
The Lazarus String Quartet has been a part of the ProQuartet organisation in Paris since 2013 where they regularly perform concerts and take part in masterclasses. A highlight from this concert series was the premiere of Arnold Schönbergs “Ein Flüstern in der Nacht” in Salle Gaveau, Paris.
The Quartet are prize-winners of the Royal Overseas League Competition, the Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now Foundation, and the Regionsstipendium Hannover. They continue to have the ongoing and generous support of the Pettman Foundation.
