The renowned Jerusalem Quartet has been enthralling the world for over 25 years with the warmth and command of its authoritative performances, and it is a frequent visitor to London’s Wigmore Hall.
Immerse yourself in the highly expressive and entrancing music of timeless string quartets by Mozart, Mendelssohn and Beethoven. The Jerusalem Quartet bring their stunning depth of expression to Mendelssohn’s warm and lyrical quartet, and Mozart’s most revered quartet. The programme is completed by Beethoven’s ground-breaking second Razumovsky quartet. Recognised as one of the greatest composers of classical music this quartet is part of a set that elevated the genre to a cosmic scale.
Mendelssohn’s warm and highly lyrical quartet is sandwiched in between two summits of the quartet repertoire.
The Mozart glows with happiness and is possibly his most widely revered quartet, and the Beethoven is a riveting and revolutionary masterpiece from the middle period of that Titan among composers.
Mozart K575 "King of Prussia"
Mendelssohn E flat Op 12
Beethoven Op 59/2 “Razumovsky”
