Jerusalem Quartet

'We feel that it is of the utmost importance to collaborate with composers and perform contemporary music,' says the Jerusalem Quartet's violist, Ori Kam. He and his colleagues gave the première of British composer Brian Elias's vibrant String Quartet in 2013 and tonight they bring the work to Wigmore Hall for the first time, along with favourites from the repertoire.
