The Buffalo Chamber Music Society is ending its 2004-05 season with an appearance by the Jerusalem Quartet, a young and internationally acclaimed group. Haydn's Quartet in B flat, Op. 76, No. 4 will begin the program, followed by Shostakovich's Quartet No. 10 in A flat, Op. 118. The evening ends with Dvorak's beloved "American" Quartet in F, Op. 96.
The Jerusalem Quartet was founded in Israel in 1993, and went on to win the Franz Schubert and the Music of the 20th Century Competition in Austria four years later. Their repertoire ranges from the traditional to the adventurous. New music fans will be interested to know that when the group competed in Austria, it won by playing Kurtag's "Twelve Microludes."
The Jerusalem Quartet's Buffalo concert takes place at 8 p.m. Tuesday in Kleinhans Music Hall's Mary Seaton Room. A preconcert talk led by WNED-FM's Peter Hall will preview next season's programs.
Admission is $20 for general admission and $10 for students. For information, call 838-2383.
