Music in the Marly: Jasper String Quartet
Distinguished critic Allan Kozinn of The New York Times has called the Jasper String Quartet “powerful” and Kenneth Herman of the San Diego Union-Tribune wrote that “this is a quartet to watch.”
The Jasper has won a wealth of awards, including the Cleveland Quartet Award, grand prize at the Coleman Competition, and grand prize and the audience prize at the Plowman Chamber Music Competition. They were the first ensemble to win the Yale School of Music’s Horatio Parker Memorial Prize, established in 1945 and selected by the faculty for “best fulfilling … lofty musical ideas.”
Violinists J Freivogel and Sae Chonabayashi, violist Sam Quintal, and cellist Rachel Henderson Freivogel will perform two Beethoven string quartets, the Fourth in C Minor (Op. 18) and the towering Op. 131 in C-sharp Minor. They will also play two challenging works by Anton Webern: Langsamer Satz and Five Movements for String Quartet (Op. 5).
