About This Performance

Deemed “superheroes of the new music world” (Boston Globe), the JACK Quartet is “the go-to quartet for contemporary music, tying impeccable musicianship to intellectual ferocity and a take-no-prisoners sense of commitment” (Washington Post). Joined for this program by New York Philharmonic Principal Clarinet Anthony McGill, the NYC-based foursome will demonstrate why they have become “the musical vehicle of choice to the next great composers who walk among us” (Toronto Star).
