Jerusalem Quartet

Haydn, Bartók and Mozart


  • Jerusalem Quartet

Since its foundation in 1996, the ensemble has attracted a loyal following, notably at Wigmore Hall, where last season it performed the cycle of Bartók’s six quartets. Here, it repeats the Fourth alongside an example by Haydn, whose opening movement makes frequent use of a motif based on perfect fifths – hence its nickname.

  • Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
        • String Quartet in D minor Op. 76 No. 2 'Fifths'
  • Béla Bartók (1881-1945)
        • String Quartet No. 4 BB95
  • Encore
  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
      • String Quartet in D minor K421
        • III. Menuetto and Trio. Allegretto
