The Grammy-nominated JACK Quartet make their Sydney Opera House debut with an exhilarating program of contemporary string quartet music.

Renowned for their transformative concert experiences, JACK Quartet champions new string quartet music. Founded in 2005 and based in New York the JACK Quartet embraces close collaboration with composers, introducing audiences around the world to cutting-edge chamber music.

For their Sydney Opera House debut, the four-some pairs Johnny MacMillan’s experimental 2022 string quartet Songs from the Seventh Floor – which tips its hat to the music of the Renaissance – with music by Renaissance composers Nicola Vicentino and Nathaniel Giels reimagined by JACK Quartet’s own Christopher Otto, on a program alongside a brand new work written for the JACK Quartet by American composer and pianist Amy Williams.

The program comes to a close with String Creatures, written for the JACK Quartet by Australian composer Liza Lim, in which she explores the nature of string itself.
