In the words of Ori Kam, violist with the Jerusalem Quartet: “We selected these three magnificent pieces, written within a span of 120 years (1810, 1895, and 1931) because they each utilize the string quartet as a singular instrument, and in the most varied and imaginative ways possible to achieve a composition with immense emotional range.”
