As part of Wigmore Hall's Haydn celebrations, on Tuesday the Jerusalem Quartet played four of his 68 quartets, including the early, melancholy Op 20 No 5 in F minor and the ravishing, expansive Op 77 No 1 in G major. To describe exactly how these players achieved such mesmerising results - an imaginative use of raw, unison down-bows in the trio of Op 74 No 3, "The Rider"; the impeccable phrasing and intonation displayed across the group - risks getting into the realms of comparing fetlocks or crankshafts.
Suffice to say this was one of the best chamber music concerts I can remember, riveting from start to finish and already ranked as one of my concerts of the year. Here, in every note, was revelation and revolution, pure and simple.
