Dvořák and Prokofiev

  • Jerusalem Quartet

Dvořák’s Terzetto for two violins and viola, written within a week’s span in 1887, provides a novel opening for a string quartet concert. The work’s folk-like tunes ideally complement the melodious classicism of Prokofiev’s First String Quartet, commissioned by the Washington Library of Congress in 1930.

The Jerusalem Quartet concludes with Dvořák’s sonorous Op. 106, a work of dazzling inventive genius.
