The JACK Quartet redefines chamber music for the 21st-century. FĂȘted for its "viscerally exciting performances" (NY Times), the Quartet offers a Duke Performances concert of potent contrasts. The uncanny compression of Webern's Six Bagatelles squares off against Schumann's expansive String Quartet No. 3. A new early-music transcription vies with the modern Physical Property by Steven Mackey, the singular Princeton composer whose blend of classical and pop music is "lithe, subtle, and more than a little playful" (Newsday). Mackey will join the JACK on electric guitar to perform his cordial, rollicking composition. *** PROGRAM: WEBERN: Six Bagatelles ; SCHUMANN: String Quartet No. 3 in A Major, Op. 41 ; TBD: New early music transcription ; STEVEN MACKEY: Physical Property (w/ Steven Mackey, electric guitar)
