On March 26, the elegant Jerusalem String Quartet will make its Parlance debut. Strad Magazine characterized this ensemble in glowing terms, saying, “Superlatives are inadequate in describing just how fine this playing was from one of the young, yet great quartets of our time.” The first half of their program will be a study in contrasts, journeying from the winged exuberance of Haydn’s “Lark” Quartet in D to the scorching passions of Beethoven’s “Serioso” Quartet in F minor. After intermission, Dvořák’s valedictory string quartet in G major will bring the afternoon to a jubilant, sunlit resolution.
