The Axiom Quartet is a dynamic and passionate string quartet that plays chamber music for the music lovers of Houston. However, not just any music; all music, all genres, and with no boundaries or limits. Axiom is known for presenting programs that mix classical string quartet repertoire, classical transcriptions, new compositions, and popular rock, electronic, indie, jazz and pop genres in a single concert experience. Extending from their passion for expressive music from across the Western tradition, Axiom Quartet presents concerts of varying genres turning classical fans towards extraordinary popular music, while serving as classical music advocates to those who normally do not attend classical concerts. Their concerts are frequently sold out
Axiom concerts are like no other classical music concerts. The Axiom quartet specializes in many genres of music and mix diverse styles of music in each of their concerts. Some of the jazz music they have performed includes: Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, and Billie Holiday. They also play modern popular songs by David Bowie, Michael Jackson, and even Journey. However, Axiom never forgets its classical roots and regularly performs classical music’s most demanding works from Beethoven and Schumann to modern works by Shostakovich and Philip Glass.
The Axiom Quartet serves as outreach ambassador for Chamber Music Houston, one of the Houston’s top chamber music presenters. The CMH sponsorship allows the group to perform their innovative programs in communities where access to live music is limited. Axiom has also performed with the nationally recognized “Harmony in the Air” program and presented weekly concerts at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Axiom is the first classical string ensemble to ever play at Cave Without a Name in the Texas Hill Country. For the past two years they have played in the cave for overflowing audiences.
The quartet is also the Quartet-in-Residence for the School of Music at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, TX. The group also released their first album “Axioms-Moments of Truth” which was a commercial success and sold out within 24 hours of being released on Amazon. Axiom will be touring this album in 12 concerts in 20 days throughout China in the summer of 2018.
