JACK Quartet: Soundscape America Performances in NY

The string quartet is an iconic configuration in classical music. This fall, JACK Quartet takes on the most consequential American string quartets of the twentieth century, and introduces Miller audiences to new masterworks by contemporary composers. Soundscape America explores these works in a journey guided by the questions they provoke and the responses they inspire.
