About the project
The Jerusalem Quartet is a string ensemble that consists of violionists Alexander Pavlovsky and Sergei Bressler, violist Amicahi Gross and cellist Kyril Zlotnikov. The quartet was founded in 1993 within the framework of the Young Musicians’ Group of the Jerusalem Music Center and the America-Israel Cultural Foundation in co-operation with the Conservatory of the Jerusalem Rubin Academy of Music and Dance, where the ensemble studied under Avi Abramovich. Since then, the quartet has received international acclaim, has won numerous international competitions, including the prestigious Franz Schubert and the Music of Modernity Competition in 1997, and has performed in some of the world’s best-loved concert halls, including Wigmore Hall in London, Carnegie Hall in New York, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. and the Louvre Museum in Paris. The Jerusalem Foundation has supported the ensemble partly with gifts raised through a Friends of the Jersualem Quarter organization.
