Jerusalem Quartet

The Jerusalem Quartet, hailed by The Strad as "one of the young, yet great quartets of our time," has garnered international acclaim for its rare combination of passion and precision.  The Jerusalem Quartet is a record three-time recipient of BBC Music Magazine's Chamber Music Award, most recently for their CD of Mozart quartets (2012), as well as for their recordings of Haydn (2010) and Shostakovich (2007). The quartet's recording of Schubert's Death and the Maiden and Quartettsatz in C minor was featured as Editor's Choice in the July 2008 edition of Gramophone, and was also awarded an ECHO Classic chamber music award in 2009. In 2003, they received the first Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, and were part of the first ever BBC New Generation Artists scheme between 1999 and 2001. The Jerusalem Quartet formed while its members were students at the Jerusalem Conservatory of Music and Dance.

While at the Weis Center, they will perform:

    • Haydn: Quartet in G-Major, Op. 77, No. 1
    • Bartok: Quartet No. 5
    • Dvorak: Quartet in F-Major, Op. 96 ("American")
