Jerusalem Quartet

Beethoven and Bartók


  • Jerusalem Quartet
  • Alexander Pavlovsky violin
  • Sergei Bresler violin
  • Ori Kam viola
  • Kyril Zlotnikov cello

Thematic economy and formal unity are common to the works in the Jerusalem Quartet’s lunchtime programme.

Beethoven builds the elaborate first and slow movements of his Op. 18 No. 2 from simple melodic ideas; Bartók, meanwhile, prefaces the four movements of his String Quartet No. 6 with the same melancholy theme and uses it as the foundation for the work’s introspective finale.
