Exploring Elliott Carter’s quartets with the JACK Quartet and Tom Service

In April 2019, the JACK Quartet performed a two-concert cycle of the complete string quartets by Elliott Carter, in a lunchtime and evening recital they have been looking forward to with anticipation.

Journalist Tom Service breaks down the music particularly of Carter’s 2nd and 3rd quartets, which form part of the evening concert programme, and 1st quartet which the JACK played at lunchtime. The JACK Quartet join Tom with instruments in hand, to give live musical examples and bring to life the exuberant and exciting characters under discussion.
