Jerusalem Quartet Mormon University September 16 To stay within the framework of an hour, as determined in the Mormon University's Sunday Evening Concerts, the Jerusalem Quartet (Alexander Pavlovsky, Sergei Bresler, Amihai Grosz, Kyril Zlotnikov) selected the shortest of Schubert's Quartets: the one-movement Quartettsatz, preceding Brahms' String Quartet Nr. 2. It was inspired playing - impassioned and vibrant. The strings sung their melodies, phrases were shaped plastically, nuances of dynamics were subtle and abundant, and contrasts were emphasized forcefully. Above all, the foursome's performance was perfectly coordinated, as if they were breathing together as one. Their sound was full, warm and sonorous, and their emotional expression was intense and profoundly involved. It was the kind of evening in which wishful thinking is realized.
