Jerusalem Quartet with
Pinchas Zukerman and Amanda Forsyth
The Jerusalem Quartet, known for stirring and passionate renditions of the most beloved repertoire, is joined by the star husband-and-wife duo of Pinchas Zukerman and Amanda Forsyth, for a special program of rarely heard string sextets. Each work here is bursting with dramatic power and evocative imagery, from the searingly intense opening of Strauss' last opera, Capriccio; to Schoenberg's richly chromatic symphonic poem Verklärte Nacht; to Tchaikovsky's sunny reminiscences of the Italian countryside, Souvenir de Florence. "Tonally, Forsyth's bronze is a perfect match for Zukerman's gold, while the nature of their personal relationship spills over in communicative music-making of enormous intimacy" (Limelight Magazine).
