The Jerusalem Quartet — four Israeli musicians of unequaled skill — present music with a warm, full, human sound and an egalitarian balance between high and low voices. As guests on the world’s great concert stages, they have in the past mastered programs ranging from an evening of all-Yiddish selections, to the great works of Strauss, Schoenberg and Tchaikovsky.
Haydn: Quartet in G Major, Op. 76 No. 1
Debussy: Quartet in G Minor, Op. 10
Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 3 in F Major, Op. 73
The Shostakovich is a chronicle of World War II, beginning with “calm unawareness of the future cataclysm” and ending with “the eternal question: Why?” Countering that high drama are the jolly bustle of Haydn and the gentle warmth of Debussy.
