Jerusalem Quartet

Part of International Chamber Music Series

‘Their playing has everything you could possibly wish for’ says the BBC Music Magazine about the Jerusalem Quartet, welcomed at Southbank Centre now for over 15 years.

The quartet is made up of violinists Alexander Pavlovsky and Sergei Bresler, violist Ori Kam and cellist Kyril Zlotnikov. Their 2015 ICMS appearance at St John’s Smith Square was greeted in The Observer as ‘among the year’s best events.’

Over the course of his career, Franz Joseph Haydn wrote around 90 string quartets, developing and perfecting the form. The six quartets of Op.76 are perhaps his most famous set, representing the pinnacle of his achievements.

Debussy wrote his only string quartet in 1893, an undulating, cyclical work featuring restless melodies and a scherzo movement dominated by plucked strings.

Beethoven’s String Quartet in E flat is nicknamed the `Harp’ for its pizzicato passages in the first movement. Op.74 is one of the middle-period quartets, in which the composer’s distinctive voice emerges from the shadow of Mozart and Haydn and comes into its own.
