Lazarus String Quartet

With roots from around the globe, the Lazarus String Quartet’s diversity puts them at the forefront of exciting young musicians emerging on the Berlin classical music scene. Founded in 2007 by graduates of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, the group has evolved through great success on the international stage. Venues including St-Martin-In-The-Fields London, Salle Gaveau Paris and music festivals such as the Edinburgh Fringe and the Heidelberger Frühling have hosted the quartet’s performances since 2010.

After graduating with a Masters in Chamber Music with Prof. Oliver Wille in Hanover, the quartet is now based in the German capital city of Berlin. Lazarus has been praised for its virtuosic ease and unified sound with a devotion to performance, having audiences leave feeling inspired and animated.

Mentors such as Prof. Eberhard Feltz and members of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe have been crucial in the quartet’s development, as has the continual support of the Pettman Foundation since their founding in 2007. The quartet is a former prize-winner of NZ’s Royal Overseas League Arts/Pettman Scholarship, which has enabled the exposure of international opportunities since 2010.

Violinists Mayumi Kanagawa (USA/Japan) and Jos Jonker (The Netherlands), violist Albin Uusijärvi (Sweden), and cellist as well as founding member of the quartet Alice Gott (New Zealand) make up the Lazarus String Quartet.
