Since their 1996 debut, the Jerusalem Quartet’s wide repertoire and stunning depth of expression have been met with countless accolades, including the Diapason d’Or and the BBC Music Magazine Award for chamber music. They bring a program that includes a late work by the father of string quartet music, Joseph Haydn, and also Brahms’s galloping, whimsical String Quartet in B-flat. They cap it off with Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 2, which gradually morphs from playful whimsy to passionate turbulence.
