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 and the 2017-18 Guest Artist in Residence at Swarthmore College.

The Quartet launched their inaugural season of Jasper Chamber Concerts in 2016-17, a series in Philadelphia devoted to world class performances of masterworks from around the world and Philadelphia. The Quartet continues with the second season in 2017-18.

The Quartet this spring also released their latest album, “Unbound”, on Sono Luminus and New Amsterdam, featuring the first recordings of 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
