Event Description

 

The Jupiter Quartet is a particularly intimate group, consisting of violinists Nelson Lee and Meg Freivogel, violist Liz Freivogel (older sister of Meg), and cellist Daniel McDonough (husband of Meg, brother-in-law of Liz). Formed in 2002, the members of this tightly-knit ensemble make it their mission to spread a love of chamber music through both performing and teaching. In addition to touring throughout the United States and abroad, the Jupiters are Artists-in-Residence at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, where they maintain private studios and run the string chamber music program. The quartet also places a strong emphasis on developing relationships with future classical music audiences through outreach work in schools and other educational performances. They believe that chamber music, because of the intensity of its interplay and communication, is one of the most effective ways of spreading an enthusiasm for “classical” music to new audiences.

In celebration of the ensemble’s fifteenth anniversary, the Jupiter Quartet will perform a unique program focused on the number 15, featuring Mozart and Beethoven’s fifteenth string quartets as well Kurtág’s fifteen-movement Officium breve in memoriam Andreae Szervánszky.
