The “rich-toned” Jupiter Quartet (New York Times) has established itself as one of the nation’s eminent ensembles. Frequently heard at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, this “exemplary” quartet brings “verve and polish” (Washington Post) to whatever it performs — which here includes Beethoven’s profound Quartet, op. 127, Janáček’s passionate Quartet No. 2 (“Intimate Letters”), and a premiere by Pierre Jalbert, “an acknowledged chamber-music master” (New Yorker).

 

Program:

Beethoven – String Quartet No. 12 in E-flat Major, op. 127
Janáček – String Quartet No. 2 (“Intimate Letters”)
Pierre Jalbert – Piano Quintet (New York premiere)
