A virtual concert of the Jupiter String Quartet on April 3, presented by Arizona Friends of Chamber Music, will feature not only Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” String Quartet No. 14 but also a world premiere of Chaconne/Labyrinth by Stephen Andrew Taylor. In fact, the Arizona Friends of Chamber Music, or AFCM, commissioned the latter piece. During the concert, Taylor will speak regarding the piece. The concert will be recorded at University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana’s Smith Memorial Recital Hall.
The Quartet is made up of
Nelson Lee, violinist
Meg Freivogel, violinist
Liz Freivogel, violist
Daniel McDonough, cellist
Daniel is Meg’s husband, and Meg and Liz Freivogel are sisters.
Having been a Quartet for 19 years now, the group has performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, and have appeared at festivals including the Virginia Arts Festival and Bowdoin Music Festival. Since 2012, the Jupiter String Quartet has been artists-in-residence at University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.
