Praised by the New Yorker for its “eloquent intensity,” the Jupiter String Quartet has received the grand prizes in the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award, and an Avery Fisher Career Grant. Performances have brought the quartet to New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, London’s Wigmore Hall, Mexico City’s Palacio de Bellas Artes, Austria’s Esterhazy Palace, and Seoul’s Sejong Chamber Hall. Their latest recording—a collaboration with the Jasper String Quartet featuring music of Dan Visconti, Felix Mendelssohn, and Osvaldo Golijov—was released on the Marquis Classics label in 2021. Since 2012, the members of the quartet have been artists-in-residence at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.
