The dynamic Jerusalem Quartet launch their fall tour with a new recording of the timeless and essential Beethoven Strings Quartets Op. 18, to be released August 14, 2015 in the U.S. They return to North America in October, 2015 and April, 2016 for concerts across the U.S. In January and February 2016, they will present a unique series in which they perform all six of Beethoven’s Op. 18 quartets and all six Bartók quartets over the course of four concerts in Portland, Oregon and New York, NY. They will also perform Bartók’s quartets in Hamburg, Madrid, London, and Tel Aviv, and will collaborate with pianist/conductor András Schiff for performances in London, Jerusalem, and at the Verbier and Salzburg Festivals. harmonia mundi will release their recording of the Bartok quartets in early winter 2016.

One of the world’s most lauded ensembles, the Jerusalem Quartet is not only renowned for its virtuosic flair, but also for its ability to create a seemless blend as an ensemble. Of their 2014 Haydn recording the renowned critic and string quartet specialist Harald Eggbrecht wrote in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, “The balance of the four voices, the delicacy of sounds is always impressive, with constant attention to dynamics, harmony and rhythmic precision. It sounds effortless, sovereign and extremely supple.”

“An absolute triumph. Their playing has everything you could possibly wish for.”
