The New York Times writes, “The Jerusalem String Quartet played it all with equal passion, and a tender sense of ownership.”  Emerging near the end of the 20th century as one of the most talented, busiest, and in-demand string quartets of its generation, the exceedingly heavy concert schedule makes the growing number of admirers wonder how the group is able to maintain such a large and ever-expanding repertory which also includes standard and contemporary works.   The Jerusalem String Quartet has also made a name for itself in collaborative performances and recordings with Martin Fröst, Steven Isserlis, Sharon Kam, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Alexander Melnikov and with Sir András Schiff with whom the ensemble marked its 20th anniversary last season in a series of piano quintet concerts.  Also marking the milestone with a Bartok string quartet cycle and Beethoven’s Op 18 quartets which they recorded with Harmonia Mundi, released in August of 2015, the Jerusalem Quartet is regularly on tour in North and South America, Asia and Europe. 

Appearing on Thursday, March 23rd at Armstrong Auditorium in Edmond, the hall now marking its seventh season, the Jerusalem String Quartet offered a program featuring the Quartet in D Major, Op 64, No. 5 "Lark" of Franz Joseph Haydn, the Quartet No. 1 in b minor, Op 50 by Sergei Prokofiev and the Quartet in F Major, Op 59, No. 1 "Razumovsky" by Ludwig van Beethoven, the ensemble presented by the Armstrong International Cultural Foundation's Performing Arts Series.
