CLASSICAL | Jerusalem Quartet 

The 2015-16 Eastman-Ranlet Concert Series opens on Sunday, October 18, with a performance by the Jerusalem Quartet. Individually, cellist Kyril Zlotnikov, violist Ori Kam, and violinists Alexander Pavlovksy and Sergei Bresler have had full and accomplished careers as orchestral soloists, chamber musicians, and teachers. Together, they form an award-winning quartet lauded for their interpretation of Haydn, Mozart, and Schubert.

As part of its 20th anniversary season, the quartet will perform all of Béla Bartók's six string quartets. For the October 18 concert at Kilbourn Hall, Bartók's Quartet No. 5 will be bookended by Haydn's Quartet Op. 77 No. 1 in G Major and Quartet Op. 96 ("American") by Dvoák for a well-balanced, varied program. In addition to witnessing the world-class musicianship, concertgoers will have the opportunity to hear rare instruments dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries, including a Giovanni Battista Ruggieri cello from 1710.

The Jerusalem Quartet plays Sunday, October 18, at Kilbourn Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 3 p.m. $20-$30.;
