The Long Version
If The New York Times calls you “the nation’s most important quartet,” then you must be doing something right… in the case of the JACK Quartet, they’ve established themselves as one of the leaders in new music, giving voice to countless composers, while creating a new body of works that prove classical music has a future far beyond powdered wigs and dusty scores.
For their Crypt Sessions debut, the JACK will give the New York premiere of Lines Made by Walking, a piece by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams that channels nature in all of its magnificence and fragility.
The Short Version
In the deep vaulted cells of the Crypt, come climb a mountain with us, spun forth from the hands of four musical giants.
