Among today's most vibrant groups specializing in new and experimental music, the JACK Quartet was Musical America's 2018 "Ensemble of the Year." They have been nominated for several Grammy Awards and received the Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2019. Continuing their mission to introduce audiences to experimental chamber music, their initiative "JACK Studio" funds yearly collaborations with selected artists and composers.
The JACK Quartet presents their program "Modern Medieval," which explores the connections of musicality and thought between European composers of the past and the voices of American music today. Arrangements of early works by Rodericus, Solage, and Nicola Vicentino are interspersed with contemporary pieces, including Caleb Burhans's Contritus, Gabriella Smith's Carrot Revolution, and John Zorn's The Remedy of Fortune.
