The Jupiter and Jasper String Quartets have released a collaborative album on Marquis Classics. This new release features the world premiere recording of Dan Visconti’s Eternal Breath (2011); Felix Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat, Op. 20 (1825); and Osvaldo Golijov’s Last Round (1996). Eternal Breath was commissioned by family members of the Jasper and Jupiter Quartets and targets the album’s underlying theme of friendship, family, and joy. The Jupiter and Jasper quartets celebrate decades of deep connections that go beyond simply enjoying playing music together.
