Synopsis

Playing in complete darkness, hissing one's bow, enduring physical and mental marathons of unprecedented difficulty. No demand is too extreme for the JACK Quartet, an indispensable ensemble for contemporary music to which many composers owe the baptism of their works. For her string quartet Carrot Revolution Gabriella Smith allowed herself to be inspired from by a phrase by Paul Cézanne: "The day will come when a single carrot, observed with a new gaze, will trigger a revolution." A revolutionary gaze that unites all the American authors chosen for this program. After all, the JACK Quartet is already an American legend.

Biographies

JACK Quartet

Hailed as "the premier quartet of new music" by The New York Times and described as "experts in the most fiercely difficult modern scores" by The New Yorker, the JACK Quartet is one of the most highly regarded contemporary experimental string quartets, committed to its mission of creating an international community through transformative, mind-opening experiences and close listening. Comprised of violinists Christopher Otto and Austin Wulliman, violist John Pickford Richards and cellist Jay Campbell, the JACK Quartet was founded in 2005 and opera as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the performance, commissioning and appreciation of 20th- and 21st-century string quartet music. Through to intense collaborations with many of today's most creative voices, the quartet has a prolific catalog of commissions and recordings and has been nominated for three GRAMMY Awards.
