Venue

Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

For over a quarter century, the Jerusalem Quartet has toured the world, earning rave reviews for its warm, full sound — a balance so finely tuned that The New York Times described the ensemble as “a single instrument with 16 strings.” They return to Meany Center with a program that explores different approaches to the art of the fugue through jewels of the string quartet repertoire by Haydn, Beethoven and Shostakovich.

 

Passion, precision, warmth, a gold blend.
— The New York Times
