ABOUT THE EVENT
‘Their playing has everything you could possibly wish for.’ - BBC Music Magazine
Praised by the The New York Times for its “passion, precision, warmth, a gold blend,” the Jerusalem Quartet has performed and recorded since 1996, with appearances in London, Paris, Zurich, Hamburg, St. Petersburg, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and other major cities, and recorded award-winning albums for the Harmonia Mundi label.
This evening’s programme traces the history of string chamber music from its roots to the mid-20th century, with three influential works. Haydn, whose work was crucial in creating the string quartet in its current form, composed his Op. 76 in 1797. Korngold, a master of film scores in his time, composed the second quartet in 1933, just before his first visit to Hollywood. The evening ends with Schubert’s String Quintet D956 – composed in 1828 and one of the pinnacles of the chamber music canon.
