Winner of the prestigious CMA Cleveland Quartet Award, Philadelphia's Jasper String Quartet is the Professional Quartet in Residence at Temple University's Center for Gifted Young Musicians.

The Quartet rounds out their commission tour of Aaron Jay Kernis’ 3rd String Quartet "River" in 2016-17 with performances at Wigmore Hall and at Classic Chamber Concerts in Florida. The Quartet's Carnegie Recital of the work last season received a glowing review in The Strad.

The Quartet will release their latest album with Sono Luminus in early 2017 featuring quartets by Donnacha Dennehy, Annie Gosfield, Judd Greenstein, Ted Hearne, David Lang, Missy Mazzoli, and Caroline Shaw.

"Sonically Delightful and Expressively Compelling"


-- The Strad

The [Jasper String Quartet] displayed joie de vivre and athleticism - and perhaps most tellingly, grins all around.
— The Strad
The Jasper Quartet generates an electricity that seems to crackle through the crowd.
— Naples Daily News
The music breathed and swelled in an expressive way without being over-calculated. Even the moments of silence vibrated with an energy.
— Lakeville Journal
The refinement, the beauty of tone — the rich, unified sonority — it reminded of eminences.
— Lesley Valdes, WRTI
Outstanding
— The New Yorker
The [Jaspers] have polished their art to near perfection.
— Palm Beach Daily News
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.
— New Haven Advocate
Exceptional
— 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.
— Harriet Heithaus, Naples News
