The JACK Quartet

World Premiere of “Creature Quartet” by Laura Schwendinger

Friday, May 8, 2015, 8 pm
Shannon Hall, Wisconsin Union Theater

Part of JACK Quartet’s mission is to introduce and perform new works of music, and for this concert the group will be debuting works by Laura Schwendinger, a professor of composition and at our very own University of Wisconsin-Madison. Schwedinger’s composing has been called “Punchy, imaginative, subtle, stirring, [and] evocative,” by Colin Clarke of Fanfare. “Creature Quartet” is made up of four larger movements which are framed by smaller movements, each one an ode to an extinct, endangered or mythical creature.

Creature Quartet is accompanied by animation by Pauline Gagniarre. See a sample.

Program:
Ritornello 2.sq.2.j                                         Caroline Shaw  (b. 1982)

Creature Quartet (2014)                              Laura Schwendinger                                             (b. 1962)

Intermission 

Porcupine (2012)                                          Michelle Lou (b. 1975)

The Alchemist (2011)                                    John Zorn (b. 1953)
