The Jerusalem Quartet will present classical works by Haydn, Bartok and Dvorak on Saturday, Oct. 17, at 7:30 p.m. at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts.
Members of the Jerusalem Quartet include Alexander Pavlovsky, violin; Sergei Bresler, violin; Ori Kam, viola; and Kyril Zlotnikov, cello.
Hailed byThe Stradas "one of the young, yet great quartets of our time," the group has garnered international acclaim for its rare combination of passion and precision. The ensemble has won audiences the world over, both in concert and on their recordings for the Harmonia Mundi label.
The Jerusalem Quartet is a record three-time recipient of BBC Music Magazine's Chamber Music Award, for their recordings of Mozart (2012), Haydn (2010) and Shostakovich (2007). Their 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. They record exclusively for Harmonia Mundi.
BBC Music Magazinesays of the quartet, "An absolute triumph. Their playing has everything you could possibly wish for." The group was part of the first-ever BBC New Generation Artists scheme between 1999 and 2001. They received the first Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award in 2003.
The Jerusalem Quartet formed while its members were students at the Jerusalem Conservatory of Music and Dance. They quickly found a shared commitment to the music that has not only endured but has also propelled them to the highest level of performance.
While at the Weis Center, they will perform Haydn: String Quartet in G-Major, Op. 77, No. 1; Bartok: String Quartet No. 5; and Dvorak: String Quartet in F-Major, Op. 96 (The American).
