Jerusalem Quartet (String Quartet)
The Jerusalem Quartet continues to be in great demand all over the world. The 2006/07 season saw the continuation of their incredibly successful Shostakovich cycle at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, and they performed the entire cycle of quartets in six concerts at the Berlin Konzerthaus, Vancouver and Dortmund. This season they will also be returning to the Wigmore Hall and the Cologne Philharmonie, as well as performing in Brussels, Paris, Munich, Luxembourg, Geneva, Chicago, New York and Washington. Next summer they make their debut at the Verbier Festival and will be performing a three-concert Brahms project in the Robeco Summer Concert Series in Amsterdam. Adding to their growing discography with Harmonia Mundi, their Dvorak recording with pianist Stefan Vladar was released in May 2006 and they will be making a substantial European tour together in November 2007.
