This album marks the culmination of the Jasper String Quartet’s decade-long journey with Aaron Jay Kernis’s music for string quartet. The four players say, “From the moment we put bow to string for Aaron’s Second Quartet, we realized his special voice and our connection to his music’s ability to capture both the complexity of the world and the simplicity of a moment. This depth fascinated us, inspired our playing, and prompted us to dream of commissioning Aaron’s Third Quartet.” That work is recorded here and programmed with Debussy’s iconic quartet.
