About the Artists

The Jasper String Quartet are “...flawless in ensemble and intonation, expressively assured and beautifully balanced.” (Gramophone). Winner of the prestigious CMA Cleveland Quartet Award, the Jaspers have been hailed as “sonically delightful and expressively compelling” (The Strad) and the New York Times named their recent album, Unbound, as one of the 25 Best Classical Recordings of 2017.

Of the Jupiter String Quartet the review stated that “Every so often a performance leaves us in awe of its loving sophistication, its attention to the finest details of balance and expression.” – Dallas Morning News. The Jupiter String Quartet is a particularly intimate group, consisting of violinists Nelson and Meg, violist Liz (Meg’s older sister), and cellist Daniel (Meg’s husband, Liz’s brother-in-law). Now enjoying their 19th year together, this tight-knit ensemble is firmly established as an important voice in the world of chamber music. The New Yorker affirmed, “The Jupiter String Quartet, an ensemble of eloquent intensity, has matured into one of the mainstays of the American chamber-music scene.”
