We are so thrilled and honored to announce that the Jerusalem Quartet once again has been nominated for the BBC Music Magazine Award 2012 !!! It is our THIRD time nomination !!!
This time for our latest recording of MOZART String Quartets Nos. 4, 17 & 22 on Harmonia Mundi.
The awards jury says... "I defy anyone not to find something new in these scintillating performances. While the Jerusalem bring all their exalted finesse to the later quartets, which are lovingly shaped and animated, it's what they do with the early K157 that's revelatory: from the opening bars we are in the midst of a riveting conversation, whose repetition brings captivating fresh insight, while the Andante's aria achieves an extraordinary poignancy.
