Jerusalem Quartet with
Pinchas Zukerman violin and viola
Amanda Forsyth cello

Praised by the New York Times as “astonishing, with an extraordinary unity of sound and purpose,” the Jerusalem Quartet partners with husband-and-wife duo Pinchas Zukerman and Amanda Forsyth for a program of lush, late romantic works. Strauss’ Sextet is a richly textured recreation of baroque chamber music from the beginning of his final opera, CapriccioTransfigured Night reflects Schoenberg’s creative shift from the influence of Brahms to Wagner. Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence is a melody-laden showcase for string sextet.
