The Jasper Quartet

May 13, 2022 at 7:00 PM

Celebrating its sixteenth anniversary in 2022, the Jasper String Quartet is recognized as one of the leading American string quartets on the performance stage today. A recipient of Chamber Music America’s prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, the quartet has been hailed as “sonically delightful and expressively compelling,” (The Strad) and described by Gramophone as “flawless in ensemble and intonation, expressively assured and beautifully balanced.” The New York Times named their album Unbound as one of the 25 Best Classical Recordings of 2017. Their concert at the PAC Center will include performances of music by Swarthmore local Adam Silverman (Spark Joy, composed for the Jasper Quartet in 2019), the lyrical first quartet by the Romantic American composer Florence Price, and the first quartet by classical prodigy Felix Mendelssohn.
