Biography

The Jerusalem Quartet has an exclusive recording contract with Harmonia Mundi and their recordings have been awarded numerous prizes. Their latest recording of Haydn's String Quartets (Vol.2) received theDiapason d'Or Arte while their earlier recording, Schubert's Death and the Maiden and Quartettsatz won an ECHO Classic Award in 2009 and was Editor's Choice in the July 2008 edition of Gramophone Magazine.

 

Their Shostakovich String Quartet disc won the chamber category of the 2007 BBC Music Magazine Awards: the jury described the release as "challenging, unpredictable Shostakovich which always convinces even when the approach is new". Further awards include first prize in the 'most impressive performance by a (small) ensemble' category of the Vereniging van Schouwburgen en Concertgebouwdirecties Dutch Music Prize in November 2007.

 

In 2003 the Quartet was a recipient of the first Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award. They were also part of the first ever BBC New Generation Artists scheme from 1999 to 2001.
