Notes and Editorial Reviews

Winner of the prestigious CMA Cleveland Quartet Award, Philadelphia’s Jasper String Quartet is the Professional Quartet in Residence at Temple University’s Center for Gifted Young Musicians. The Jaspers record exclusively for Sono Luminus and have released three highly acclaimed albums in addition to this one. This new release features music by some of America’s leading composers, including Caroline Shaw, Missy mazzoli, David Lang, Ted Hearne, and Annie Gosfield. The quartet writes: “The seven pieces on this album represent a collection of treasures we’ve discovered from this century. One of these pieces, Annie Gosfield’s “The Blue Horse Walks on the Horizon,” was written expressly for our quartet. The rest we unearthed as we sifted through Read more the vibrant and varied landscape of music being created today…” “The Jaspers… match their sounds perfectly, as if each swelling chord were coming out of a single, impossibly well-tuned organ, instead of four distinct instruments.” (New Haven Advocate) Read less
