Jupiter String Quartet makes its Music Mountain debut | The scene

FALLS VILLAGE, Conn. – On Sunday, August 28 at 3 p.m., the internationally acclaimed Jupiter String Quartet, winners of the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, will make their first Music Mountain appearance at Gordon Hall. (225 Music Mountain Road). Celebrating its 93rd season, Music Mountain will also commemorate the 250th anniversary of Haydn’s “Sun” quartets, which are credited with leading to the formation of the string quartet as it is currently known. Jupiter Quartet’s performance is the fifth of six scheduled performances in the series.

The Jupiter Quartet will present a program featuring the Quartet in D major, Op. 20 n° 4, the Chaconne/Labyrinthe by Steve Taylor and the Quartet n° 1 in D major, op. 11. Haydn’s String Quartet in D major features an intelligent and conversational interplay of the four instruments – a characteristic of the composer considered the “grandfather” of string quartet writing.
