JACK Quartet with Conrad Tao [CONCERT] Online
JACK Quartet: Christopher Otto and Austin Wulliman, violins, John Pickford Richards, viola, Jay Campbell, cello; with Conrad Tao, piano
The extraordinary JACK Quartet brings its ever-expanding notion of what a string quartet can be to their virtual residency. In their opening event they will trace an interesting artistic lineage of American masters, revealing the compositional thread linking Ruth Crawford Seeger’s groundbreaking 1931 string quartet with Elliott Carter’s third quartet. Pianist Conrad Tao joins violinist Austin Wulliman in a landmark commission from the Library’s McKim Fund, Carter’s Duo. And music from MacArthur Fellow Tyshawn Sorey moves forward to a new generation of remarkable emerging composers featured in the exploratory JACK Frontiers program. Conversations and manuscript explorations, listening parties and meet-the-artist moments introduce these daring and inventive artists throughout the season.
