Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music: The Jupiter String Quartet with the Jasper String Quartet
The Jupiter String Quartet will give a virtual concert presented by Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music, recorded from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Presented through high quality video recordings, the concert will be available to online ticketholders on Friday evening, and for a few days after. The Jupiters will share the concert with their frequent collaborators, the Jasper String Quartet. The Jupiter Quartet will perform Beethoven’s “Harp” Quartet No. 10 in E-flat Major, Op. 74, paying tribute to Beethoven’s 250th birthday year. The Jasper Quartet will play music by Lera Auerbach and Joan Tower, from 4 Seasons | 4 Composers, a project they have commissioned this year bringing the muse of the seasons to the string quartet genre. The evening concludes with Mendelssohn’s monumental Octet in E-flat, Op. 20, performed by the Jaspers with Peter Rovit and Sonya Williams, violins; Arvilla Wendland, viola; and Heidi Hoffman, cello.
