Georg Haas: In iij. Noct., String Quartet No. 3. 2003
JACK Quartet: John Pickford Richards, viola; Ari Streisfeld, violin; Christopher Otto, violin; Kevin McFarland, cello
This concert marks the return of the JACK Quartet. With ringing endorsements from the likes of Helmut Lachenmann and Matthias Pintscher, the JACK Quartet has emerged as one of the country?s premier string ensembles. This evening they will perform Georg Friedrich Haas’ In iij. Noct., String Quartet No. 3, a roughly 45-minute work of mind-numbing beauty in which no two performances could ever be the same.
This concert is supported in part by the Argosy Foundation Contemporary Music Fund.
