JACK Quartet electrifies audiences worldwide with â€œexplosive virtuosityâ€ (Boston Globe) and â€œviscerally exciting performancesâ€ (New York Times). David Patrick Stearns (Philadelphia Inquirer) proclaimed their performance as being â€œamong the most stimulating new-music concerts of my experience.â€ The Washington Post commented, â€œThe string quartet may be a 250-year-old contraption, but young, brilliant groups like the JACK Quartet are keeping it thrillingly vital.â€ Alex Ross (New Yorker) hailed their performance of Iannis Xenakis' complete string quartets as being â€œexceptionalâ€ and â€œbeautifully harsh,â€ and Mark Swed (Los Angeles Times) called their sold-out performances of Georg Friedrich Haas' String Quartet No. 3 In iij. Noct. â€œmind-blowingly good.â€
