Mozart Quartet K.421, 4th movement


NEWS

23 November 2015

The Jerusalem Quartet is celebrating its 20th anniversary with two new recordings and multiple visits to North America in the 2015-16 season. Their double CD of Beethoven’s Op. 18 quartets will be followed in early 2016 by a recording of all six Bartok quartets. The group takes all twelve quartets combined to the Friends of Chamber Music Portland and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center for a unique cycle highlighting these composers’ chamber works.

 

Of their recording of Beethoven’s Op. 18 quartets, Gramophone praises their “Personality, integrity and lustrous tone,” while the Strad admires their “cultivated blend to these extraordinary works without either dampening their novelty or introducing anachronistic mannerisms: they respect the set’s turn-of-the-19th-century identity but also its internal diversity.”
