In preparation for the Jerusalem Quartet's March 2013 performances of the full cycle of Shostakovich quartets, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center has launched a comprehensive website exploring the composer and his music. The Jerusalem Quartet will also perform the cycle for the Friends of Chamber Music in Portland, Oregon, and many of the Shostakovich quartets can be found on their programs elsewhere this season.
Jerusalem Quartet Wins an Unprecedented Third(!) BBC Music
Two years ago the Jerusalem Quartet became the first artist to win a second BBC Music Magazine award. Not content with that level of domination, on April 12, 2012 they received their third award, this time for their widely admired Mozart recording for harmonia mundi. At this rate, they'll need to rename the award, at least for chamber music!
The Jerusalem Quartet has been invited by the Chamber Music Society at Lincoln Center to perform a full cycle of Shostakovich quartets in March, 2013. Watch a season preview here!
