In Europe, as well, the quartet enjoys an enthusiastic reception, having appeared in prominent concert halls such as the Zürich Tonhalle, the Munich Herkulessaal, Wigmore Hall in London, and the Parisian Salle Pleyel, as well as special guest performances at the Auditorium du Louvre Paris, the Laeiszhalle Hamburg and as well festivals like Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, Verbier Festival, Rheingau Musikfestival and many more.

The Jerusalem Quartet records exclusively for harmonia mundi. The quartet's recordings of Haydn's string quartets and Schubert's “Death and the Maiden” have been honored with numerous awards such as the Diapason d'Or, the BBC Music Magazine Award for chamber music, and the ECHO Klassik. In January 2014, the quartet's recording of string quartets by Leoš Janáček and Bedřich Smetana was released to critical acclaim.

After a successful 2014/2015 season with concert tours in North and South America, Asia and Europe, the Jerusalem Quartet will celebrate its 20th anniversary in the 2015/2016 season with an artistic focus on Beethoven's op. 18 string quartets - works that are featured in the quartet's latest recording, released in August 2015.

The quartet's concert programmes will also include works by Dvorák, Haydn, Brahms and Bartók. Additionally, the quartet will celebrate its 20th anniversary by performing several concerts with well-known music partners and present special projects - including a Bartók string quartet cycle and piano quintet concerts with Sir András Schiff.
