Jasper String Quartet Delights Fans on 2nd Album

Bookmark and Share

After receiving critical acclaim for their stellar performances and passionate recording, the Jasper String Quartet is back on the classical scene with their latest release, The Kernis Project: Schubert. The cd is the quartet's second album, and continues to exhibit the group's powerful musical chemistry. Not only do Schubert and Kernis both ruminate in the angelic and spiritual realms for these works, their overall compositional structures are strikingly similar. Both feature monumental opening movements, transcendent slow movements, short and driving scherzos, and devilish finales. Though different in many respects, these two works garner startling parallels despite the 166 years between them.
