The one flower representing music, the reed, flourishes in Israel, home of the Jerusalem Quartet. The Quartet, hailed by The Strad as "one of the young, yet great quartets of our time," has garnered international acclaim for its rare combination of passion andprecision. The ensemble's recordings for the Harmonia Mundi label have won a record three Chamber Music Awards from BBC Music Magazine.
The Jerusalem Quartet was founded by students at the Jerusaleme Conservatory of Music and Dance. The players quickly found a shared commitment that has propelled them to the highest level of performance.
