JACK Quartet

The JACK Quartet begins the second year of its two-year Duke Performances residency with a new Haas work, the Ninth Quartet, written to be performed in the dark.Haas composed his ecstatic new quartet for the JACK; the group premiered it in Lisbon in 2017. Combining extended passages of radiant drone with microtonal melodies, it is a perfect showcase for Haas' compositional rigor and the JACK's technical clarity. In Durham, as specified by the composer, the JACK Quartet once again turns out the lights - this time at the Durham Fruit & Produce Company.
