The JACK Quartet

The Brentano Quartet

March 31 – April 5, 2019

“Balance and intonation reach an almost unearthly level of perfection, yet there’s nothing inhuman about these American musicians. And their intimate embrace is marvellous: it’s as though each player is inhabiting each others’ skin…a splendid quartet”  The Times (London)

In collaboration with Hancher Auditorium
