Past Event Sound Series: Tony Arnold and JACK Quartet
Tony Arnold and JACK Quartet play with the building blocks of language in the Pittsburgh Premiere of Amy William’s Urquintett, explore the hazy intersection of early European and Turkish modal music in Cenk Ergün’s Celare, and enact an auditory scenario of four distinctly characterized individuals in dramatic conversation with Elliott Carter’s String Quartet No. 2.
Soprano Tony Arnold is a luminary in the world of chamber music and art song. “Today’s classical composers are inspired by her inherently beautiful voice, consummate musicianship, and embracing spirit” (Huffington Post). Hailed by the New York Times as “a bold, powerful interpreter,” she is internationally acclaimed as a leading proponent of contemporary music in concert and recording, having premiered hundreds of works by established and emerging composers.
Hailed by the New York Times as “our leading new-music foursome”, the JACK Quartet is one of the most acclaimed, renowned, and respected groups performing today. JACK has maintained an unwavering commitment to their mission of performing and commissioning new works, giving voice to underheard composers and cultivating an ever-greater sense of openness toward contemporary classical music.
Doors open at 7 p.m.
