Beethoven's Last Call

Once upon a time, Beethoven took the music world by storm with his surprising performances and new forms of expression. On the heels of Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto (August 25), this program by the Jupiter Quartet brings together Beethoven’s music with a strong, compelling voice from today’s musical culture, the “acknowledged chamber music master” Pierre Jalbert (New Yorker).

Program:

Beethoven: String Quartet Op. 18, No. 2
Pierre Jalbert: Piano Quintet
Beethoven: String Quartet, Op. 131

Jupiter String Quartet

(Nelson Lee, violin Megan Freivogel, violin Liz Freivogel, viola Daniel McDonough, cello )

The Jupiter String Quartet stands at the forefront of the younger generation of classical chamber music ensembles. Formed in 2002, they concertize across the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and South America performing the world's finest halls, including New York's Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center and Library of Congress, in Washington, D.C., Boston's Jordan Hall, London's Wigmore Hall, Mexico City's Palacio de BellasArtes, the Esterházy Palace in Austria, and Seoul's National Arts Center and Sejong Chamber Hall. They have been enthusiastically welcomed at major music festivals in North America, including Aspen, the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival, Skaneateles, the Vancouver Chamber Music Festival, Banff, and Lanaudiere Festival, and abroad at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival in Ireland and the Seoul Spring Festival, among many others. The Jupiters have received several musical distinctions: an Avery Fisher Career Grant (2008), Grand Prize in the Banff International String Quartet Competition (2004), Grand Prize in the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition (2004), membership in Lincoln Center's Chamber Music Society Two (2007-2010), and Chamber Music America's Cleveland Quartet Award (2007). The Jupiter String quartet is in its 5th year as Artists-In-Residence at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, where each member maintains a private studio as well as responsibility for running the chamber music program.
