Jerusalem Quartet

Music Under Tyranny
Thursday, April 27, 2023 7:30 PM Zankel Hall
Jerusalem Quartet by Harald Hoffmann
The Jerusalem Quartet is an internationally acclaimed ensemble praised by the Library of Congress for its “strong sense of drama and a striking range of tonal color.” In its return to Zankel Hall, the quartet brings a program of notable Prokofiev, Shostakovich, and Bartók string quartets composed during times of relentless personal, political, and societal turmoil. The string quartet has always been a musical form that allows for great individuality and experimentation; in times of oppression or war, it has also served as a crucial outlet for artistic expression and freedom. Feel the passion of three great works born in the shadow of war and tyranny.
