San Francisco Performances JACK Quartet with Joshua Roman, cello

Deemed “superheroes of the new music world” (Boston Globe), the JACK Quartet is the go-to quartet for contemporary music, tying impeccable musicianship to intellectual ferocity and a take-no-prisoners sense of commitment. The JACK Quartet returns to SF Performances after their debut on the PIVOT series in 2016, with guest cellist-composer Joshua Roman in a program of works, several written specifically for the performers.

JACK’s spirit of adventure and communication will be very much in view on October 13. A program anchored by a five-century old selection highlights this ensemble’s goal to shine a contemporary light on music of the past, while grounded in their commitment to the essential facet of chamber music in the music of the present: creating an intimate, engaging shared experience of art in good company.
