About this CD

Dedicated to performing cutting-edge, up-to-the-minute music, the supremely cool, New York based JACK Quartet electrifies audiences worldwide with "explosive virtuosity" (Boston Globe) and "viscerally exciting performances" (New York Times).

The Quartet made its Wigmore Hall debut in July 2011 in a concert exploring new sounds and musical languages. With an exciting programme of Ligeti, Pintscher, Cage and Xenakis, this recording presents new ways of conceiving the relationship of four string players in a genre which has for over 250 years shown itself remarkably able to support innovation as well as tradition.
