JACK QUARTET

CHRISTOPHER OTTO, violin
AUSTIN WULLIMAN, violin
JOHN PICKFORD RICHARDS, viola
JAY CAMPBELL, cello

JOSHUA ROMAN, cello

Deemed "superheroes of the new music world" (Boston Globe), JACK is "the go-to quartet for contemporary music, tying impeccable musicianship to intellectual ferocity and a take-no-prisoners sense of commitment" (Washington Post). Joshua Roman spent two seasons as principal cellist of the Seattle Symphony, and has appeared as a soloist with the San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Mariinsky Orchestra, and New World Symphony, among many others.

 

This accomplished collaborative ensemble presents a program of thrilling works including Tornado, a new piece for cello quintet by JOSHUA ROMAN. Whether a tornado is literal or metaphorical, it turns things upside down in a moment and leaves us with a confused sense of fear, awe, as well as an appreciation for nature’s beautiful wrath.
