The centerpiece of the Jupiter String Quartet’s program is a new work by Canadian composer Kati Agócs, recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a lifetime achievement award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. The new work is framed by two canonical quartets that each stretched the genre in their own ways. Beethoven deconstructs the classical four-movement form, opting instead for a radically integrated work, motivically dense and contrapuntal. Debussy, on the other hand, preserves a more traditional structure for his only string quartet, exploring new textural and harmonic frontiers.
