The Jack Quartet: Xenakis String Quartets

2008 NR

String powerhouse the Jack Quartet delivers an energetic, critically lauded performance of four string quartets by Greek composer Iannis Xenakis, a pioneer of post-war avant-garde music, including the rarely performed "Ergma." The program is dynamically shot on three cameras and features surround sound. In 2009, the quartet scored an ASCAP/Chamber Music America Award for Adventurous Programming of Contemporary Music.
