Tippet Rise & Friends at Home: JACK Quartet | Streaming May 6, 2021 6PM MDT

Please join us for a virtual concert from our fourth season at Tippet Rise Art Center, recorded August 3rd, 2019, featuring the JACK Quartet. The Boston Globe called the quartet “superheroes of the new music world.’ The Washington Post said they are “the go-to quartet for contemporary music, tying impeccable musicianship to intellectual ferocity and a take-no-prisoners sense of commitment.” It’s natural, then, that these champions of new music should perform works by the composer John Luther Adams, including the world premiere of Lines Made By Walking (String Quartet No. 5), which was commissioned by Tippet Rise and which Adams began composing while in residence at the art center in 2018.

Program:

JOHN LUTHER ADAMS: The Wind In High Places
ADAMS: Dream of the Canyon Wren
ADAMS: Lines Made By Walking (Tippet Rise commission)

Filmed at the Olivier Music Barn on August 3, 2019
