The Jerusalem Quartet presents two pieces written under the disturbing impression of the Second World War. Béla Bartók composed String Quartet No. 6 under the sign of the impending departure for U.S. exile. Sergei Prokofiev composed his Second Quartet in North Caucasus, where he had been evacuated in 1941. Local folklore entered his work in an emotional way.
