• Star Quartet at RAMA

    20th of May 2017 · tags:

    The four strings in JACK Quartet from New York will visit the Academy in connection with composer Allan Gravgaard Madsen's debut from the soloist class on 26 May. It is quite unusual that an international top ensemble participates in a debut concert.

    Two days before, Wednesday 24 May, the guests will hold a "reading session" at the Academy where composer students will be able to test sketches on upcoming works and receive sparring by the quartet. Also the quartet holds a presentation about alternative playing techniques, and they play a work from their extensive repertoire. Everyone is welcome in Chamber Music Hall at Music Hall Aarhus for reading session at 9-11 am. and for presentation and mini-concert at 11:30 to 12:30. See Facebookevent.

    JACK Quartet has among others been called "superheroes of the new music world" (Bosten Globe). They focus on contemporary music, from Lachenmann, Ligeti, Carter and beyond, and they have played all over the world. Just within the last six months they played in Carnegie Hall in New York, Wigmore Hall in London and the new Elb Philharmonie in Hamburg.
