The Jasper String Quartet is delighted to announce their latest album, The Kernis Project: Debussy.

On June 7, 2019, Sono Luminus releases THE KERNIS PROJECT: DEBUSSY [DSL-92233], the third and final installment in the critically acclaimed Jasper String Quartet’s survey of string quartet music by Pulitzer, Grawemeyer, and double Grammy® Award-winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis.

Hailed as “sonically delightful and expressively compelling” (The Strad), the Jasper String Quartet’s newest recording pairs Debussy’s String Quartet in G Minor, Op. 10 with Kernis’s String Quartet No. 3 (“River”).

This album follows the Quartet’s previous release, Unbound, named by the New York Times as one of the 25 Best Classical Recordings of 2017.

The music breathed and swelled in an expressive way without being over-calculated. Even the moments of silence vibrated with an energy.

The refinement, the beauty of tone — the rich, unified sonority — it reminded of eminences.
— Lesley Valdes, WRTI
Precise and elegant, with power when needed; they bit into each phrase like biting into a crisp apple
— Reading Eagle
The Jaspers… match their sounds perfectly, as if each swelling chord were coming out of a single, impossibly well-tuned organ, instead of four distinct instruments.

— The New Yorker
[The Jasper Quartet] plays with a confidence and comprehension way beyond their years. Every work they performed ... seemed to be their favorite and by the end of the evening they were audience favorites too.
