Quartet Fest West 2024: Jasper String Quartet

Sunday, June 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Celebrating its eighteenth season in 2024, the Jasper String Quartet is hailed as “flawless in ensemble and intonation, expressively assured and beautifully balanced” (Gramophone). The Quartet’s  “programming savvy” (clevelandclassical.com) evocatively connects the music of underrepresented and living composers to the canonical repertoire in thought-provoking programs.

A recipient of Chamber Music America’s prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, the Quartet’s playing is “sonically delightful and expressively compelling” (The Strad). The ensemble has released eight albums, including Unbound, named by the New York Times as one of the year’s 25 Best Classical Recordings.

The Jasper String Quartet is the Founder and Artistic Director of Jasper Chamber Concerts the Director of the Saint Paul Chamber Music Institute, and the Professional Quartet-in-Residence at Temple University’s Center for Gifted Young Musicians.

Victoria audiences will remember Vivian Fung’s Fifth Quartet “Spiraling” commissioned by the LSQ. The Jasper String Quartet has performed and recorded her quartets 1-4 for the Sono Luminus label as well as Reinaldo Moya’s Pájaros Garabatos with soprano Maria Brea. Critics praise the Quartet’s recordings as “artistically nuanced, executed with gorgeous technique and plenty of personality” (Music City Review).

The Jasper Quartet also continues in its eighth season as Artistic Director of Jasper Chamber Concerts, a series founded by the Quartet and dedicated to encouraging curiosity, community, and inclusivity through world-class chamber music performances.
