November 7, 2021
The 92nd Street Y, one of New York’s leading cultural venues, presents the Jerusalem Quartet and Amanda Forsyth, cello, playing Schubert, Hadyn, and more on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 8pm ET as part of its fall classical music season, its first fully in-person season since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The concert will also be available via livestream and available for 48 hours from time of broadcast. Tickets for both the in-person and livestream options are $20-$45 and are available at 92y.org/event/jerusalem-quartet.
The splendid Jerusalem Quartet returns to 92Y with a program of music by Shostakovich and Haydn — repertoire that celebrates the “gold blend of passion, precision and warmth” that The Times (London) wrote is “the hallmark of this excellent Israeli string quartet.” Lush, sublime chamber music, from a beloved ensemble, which is then joined by noted cellist Amanda Forsyth, hailed for the “exquisite expressiveness that seem(s) to flow effortlessly from her hands and bow” in a performance of Schubert’s radiant Cello Quintet in C Major.
The program includes:
Haydn, Quartet in F Minor, Op. 20, No. 5
Shostakovich, Quartet No. 7 in F-sharp Minor, Op. 108
Schubert, Quintet in C Major, D. 956
Alexander Pavlovsky, violin
Sergei Bresler, violin
Ori Kam, viola
Kyril Zlotnikov, cello
Amanda Forsyth, cello
Comprising 14 concerts performed in 92Y’s historic Kaufmann Concert Hall, the fall season includes two appearances by world-renowned pianist Richard Goode; an all-Rossini program from tenors Lawrence Brownlee and Michael Spyres; the first performance by The Knights as 92Y’s inaugural Ensemble in Residence; the 92Y debuts of rising star violinist Randall Goosby, intrepid cellist Seth Parker Woods, and the Grammy Award-nominated Aizuri Quartet; guitarist Ana Vidovic; MacArthur “Genius” Award winner and pianist Jeremy Denk, and others, performing a diverse group of repertoire which includes works of Eleanor Alberga, Johann Sebastian Bach, Joseph Boulogne, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Jessie Montgomery, César Franck, Florence Price, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and more.
