A string quartet will bring a lighter side of classical music to Israel

Mozart Group, a Polish string quartet that offers a humorous take on familiar classical works, will perform May 19-21 in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa.

The performers of “Mozart Comes to Town” are violinists Filip Jaslar and Michal Sikorski, Pawel Kowaluk on viola and Bolek Blaszczyk on cello. Over the past 30 years, they have performed together in over 50 countries around the world.

The four take familiar classics from Mozart, Strauss, Bach, Beethoven, Bizet and Paganini and spice them up with current musical styles and movements, such as performances of Beethoven in a country and western style or Mozart mixed with the Beatles, as well than with dance moves on stage.

Ticket prices range from NIS 166 to NIS 279 for performances in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa of the tuxedo-clad quartet, which loves to poke fun at the big-name artists that make up its classic playlist.
