The JACK Quartet electrifies audiences worldwide with "explosive virtuosity" (Boston Globe) and "viscerally exciting performances" (The New York Times). The recipient of Lincoln Center's Martin E. Segal Award, New Music USA's Trailblazer Award, and the CMA/ASCAP Award for Adventuous Programming, JACK is dedicated to the commissioning and performance of new works.

Comprising violinists Christopher Otto and Ari Streisfeld, violist John Pickford Richards, and cellist Kevin McFarland, JACK continues to work closely with composers, including John Luther Adams, Chaya Czernowin, Beat Furrer, Georg Friedrich Haas, Vijay Iyer, Helmut Lachenmann, Matthias Pintscher, Steve Reich, Salvatore Sciarrino, and John Zorn. As advocates for young performers and composers, JACK leads workshops at institutions around the world, including at Princeton, Yale, Harvard, New York and Columbia Universities, as well as at the Oberlin Conservatory, Manhattan School of Music, June in Buffalo, and the Darmstaft Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik.

"...remarkably concentrated performances assuring that future JACK events will be drop-everything-and-go occasions." – Philadelphia Inquirer

JACK Quartet's Greenroom Picks

    JACK and Hannah were in school together, and she wrote this work for us years later. We're particularly thankful that this piece began what has become a long and ongoing relationship between us, as we continue to develop new works together now.

    This is one of the first works JACK recorded and toured with, and we continue to perform it today. The piece is always an adventure, and we are still learning what makes it tick!

    JACK commissioned this work, and it is a meditation on a six-week artist residency that Greg spent at a psychiatric unit in New Jersey where he performed music for and with the residents. It's an incredible work, and it always means so much to us when we perform it.
