JACK Quartet at Le Poisson Rouge


György Ligeti

From NYTimes.com:

You know you are entering relatively uncharted territory when the old guard on a concert program is represented by Gyorgy Ligeti. And for the JACK Quartet, the Ligeti work it played at Le Poisson Rouge on Sunday evening, the String Quartet No. 2 (1968), must have seemed an antique. It is older than any of the ensemble’s players by more than a decade. For that matter, the oldest of the JACK players were teenagers when Horatiu Radulescu completed his String Quartet No. 5 (“Before the Universe Was Born,” 1995), the long, otherworldly soundscape that closed the program.
