Malion Quartett

Alexander Jussow, violin
Jelena Galic, violin
Lilya Tymchyshyn, viola
Bettina Kessler, violoncello

The Malion Quartet is comprised of four passionate chamber musicians, each of whom, even before the foundation of the quartet, performed at a number of reknowned Chamber Music Festivals, including Verbier, Schleswig-Holstein, Rheingau Musikfestival, Heidelberger Frühling, Rencontres Musicales d‘Evian, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Musikfest Stuttgart, Podium Festival Esslingen, Mozartfest Würzburg, and Konzerthaus Berlin.

The young ensemble‘s busy concert schedule has included concerts in halls such as the Alte Oper Frankfurt, das Holzhausenschlösschen and the Solitude Palace in Stuttgart.

Shortly after the quartet was founded in 2018, they became scholarship holders in the Foundation Villa Musica Rheinland-Pfalz, as well as winning the Competition of the Polytechnic Society in Frankfurt.

In 2019 the members of the young ensemble were taken on as scholarship holders in the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA). In the same year, they became prizewinners in the PE-Förderungen Competition, and in 2020 they were the only string quartet to be taken on by the foundation.

All four musicians are prizewinners of national and international competitions, such as Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben, Peter-Pirazzi-Stiftung and Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now.

The quartet has received essential musical guidance from Prof. Eberhard Feltz, as well as members of the Alban Berg Quartet, Artemis Quartet and Cuarteto Casals. The four members of the Malion Quartet are Masters students in the Quartet Class of Prof. Tim Vogler at the University of Music in Frankfurt am Main.

Jerusalem Quartet

Alexander Pavlovsky, violin
Sergei Bresler, violin
Ori Kam, viola
Kyril Zlotnikov, violoncello

Since the ensemble’s founding in 1993 and subsequent 1996 debut, the four Israeli musicians have embarked on a journey of growth and maturation. This journey has resulted in a wide repertoire and stunning depth of expression, which carries on the string quartet tradition in a unique manner. The ensemble has found its core in a warm, full, human sound and an egalitarian balance between high and low voices. This approach allows the quartet to maintain a healthy relationship between individual expression and a transparent and respectful presentation of the composer’s work. It is also the drive and motivation for the continuing refinement of its interpretations of the classical repertoire as well as exploration of new epochs.

The Jerusalem Quartet is a regular and beloved guest on the world’s great concert stages. With regular bi-annual visits to North America, the quartet has performed in cities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington, and Cleveland as well as in the Ravinia Festival. In Europe, the quartet enjoys an enthusiastic reception with regular appearances in London’s Wigmore hall, Tonhalle Zürich, Munich Herkulessaal, Theatre des Champs-Elysées, as well as special guest performances at the Auditorium du Louvre Paris, the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and festivals such as Salzburg, Verbier, Schleswig-Holstein, Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, Rheingau, Saint Petersburg White Nights and many others.

The Jerusalem Quartet records exclusively for Harmonia Mundi. The quartet’s recordings, particularly the albums featuring Haydn’s string quartets and Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden”, have been honored with numerous awards such as the Diapason d’Or and the BBC Music Magazine Award for chamber music. In 2018, the quartet released two albums, an album of Dvorak’s String Quintet Op.97 and Sextet Op.48, and a much-awaited recording of the celebrated quartets by Ravel and Debussy. In the spring of 2019, the quartet released a unique album exploring Jewish music in Central Europe between the wars and its far-reaching influence. Israeli Soprano Hila Baggio joined the quartet to perform a collection of Yiddish Cabaret songs from Warsaw in the 1920s. The quartet has commissioned composer Leonid Desyatnikov to arrange these songs, which are sung in Yiddish. Schulhoff’s Five Pieces (1924), a collection of short and light cabaret-like pieces, and Korngold’s Quartet No.2 (1937) are completing the program.
