For more than 10 years, beginning with its first concert in Jerusalem, this vibrant chamber music quartet has been proving just how fun the genre can be with its one-of-a-kind youthful exuberance and riveting performances. The group's four young superstars, all still in their twenties, have already established an international reputation as one of the most interesting and dynamic quartets of their generation. Students of the late Isaac Stern and the Amadeus String Quartet, they are winners of the Jerusalem Academy Chamber Music and Schubert Competitions and are currently Quartet-in-Residence at The Royal Academy of Music in London. They last performed at the Kennedy Center in 1998 during the Art of the State: Israel at 50 festival, and are renowned for their "impeccable blend [and] fiery sweetness. Since they formed in 1993, their career has been a triumphal ascent" (London’s The Daily Telegraph).
