The Jerusalem Quartet partners with husband-and-wife duo Pinchas Zukerman (violin and viola) and Amanda Forsyth (cello) for a redolent and dramatic evening of late romantic works. The sextet performs the opening of Strauss’ Capriccio, the composer’s final opera and culmination of his work in the genre, along with Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, Op 70 and Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night.

The Jerusalem Quartet’s ensemble was founded in 1993 and after their 1996 debut, the four Israeli musicians of the Jerusalem Quartet embarked on a journey of growth and maturation. Pinchas Zukerman reigns as one of today’s most sought after and versatile musicians as a violin and viola soloist, conductor and chamber musician. Canadian Juno Award-winning Amanda Forsyth is considered one of North America’s most dynamic cellists

This concert is part of the Flora Glenn Candler Concert Series, which brings internationally-renowned artists to Emory University’s Schwartz Center for Performing Arts.

The Jerusalem Quartet with Pinchas Zukerman & Amanda Forsyth will be at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, Emerson Concert Hall, on October 10, 2018 at  8 p.m. For tickets and information, or call 404-727-5050.
