JACK Quartet enjoyed Summer dates at the Ottawa Chamberfest, the Music Academy of the West, in Lucerne and at the Salzburg Festival, before returning home to New York for the opening of the Miller Theatre season, performing a "a dazzlingly off-the-wall evening of music, video and performance art" by the Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersen:
"This ensemble proved that it remains one of the most fiercely adventurous and undaunted new-music groups in the business." – Corinna da Fonseca-Wolheim, THE NEW YORK TIMES, Sept. 18, 2015
Early this month JACK joined John Luther Adams celebrations at Miller Theatre, and led a special marathon of new and recent works for the American Composer Orchestra's SONiC Festival, collaborating with So Percussion, Caroline Shaw, Derek Bermel and other stars of the new music scene.
This week, JACK performs concerts in Bogota, Columbia, and on Oct. 29 at the Smithsonian, JACK joins forces with the Lightbulb Ensemble to perform new music for strings, American gamelan, and the two ensembles combined.
Next month they perform in Madrid and Frankfurt, and open the American Music Project's festival in collaboration with Anthony McGill. And as Artists-in-Residence at Boston University, JACK Quartet performs concerts, offers masterclasses, a composer's forum, and much more, throughout the season.
And the New York Philharmonic has just announced that JACK Quartet will open their 2016 NY PHIL BIENNIAL with a concert of New York and world premieres (learn more here).
