Two wonderful reviews of the Jerusalem Quartet at Shriver Hall:

"The burnished sound of the ensemble proved as impressive as the incisive phrasing, nowhere more so than in the waltzing second theme of the opening movement, which could not have been more subtly inflected." -Tim Smith, Baltimore Sun

"Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” quartet (D. 810) featured on one of the group’s best recordings, and it concluded this concert in grand style. The ensemble showed outstanding control in the tragic rendition of the sotto voce theme of the variations movement, based on Schubert’s eponymous song. Menace seeped from the dialogue of that song into the other movements, hinted at in both the coda of the first movement and the hard edge of the Menuetto. The finale, impossibly fast but also light, was understated but in a devastating way."- Charles T. Downey, Washington Post
