Jupiter String Quartet

Nelson Lee, violin | Megan Freivogel, violin | Liz Freivogel, viola | Daniel McDonough, cello

The Jupiter String Quartet is a dynamic and democratic ensemble that has developed into one of the world’s most sought-after chamber groups. Over its 14-year history, the Jupiter has won first prize in multiple competitions including Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.  Graduates of the Cleveland Institute of Music and Oberlin College, the Quartet continues to gather acclaim through membership in Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Society Two, as well as receiving an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2008. In addition to their performing career, the Jupiters are the String Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. The Quartet has recorded works by Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Shostakovich and Britten for Marquis Records. As part of a recording for iTunes in conjunction with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Deutsche Grammophon, the Quartet performed American works by Barber, Seeger and Gershwin. Most recently, they collaborated on a collection of works by Ravel (Ravel: Intimate Masterpieces) on the Oberlin College label. Two upcoming recordings are in the works on the Azica label this season.

“The listener was struck–awestruck, even–by Stoltzman’s expressive range, the wide array of musical colors he brings to the music, the varied sounds: seductive, biting, poetic, witty, beautiful, ugly.”  Los Angeles Times

Richard Stoltzman, clarinet

Two-time Grammy Award-winning clarinetist Richard Stoltzman’s virtuosity, technique, imagination and communicative power have revolutionized the world of clarinet playing, opening up possibilities for the instrument that no one could have predicted. He was responsible for bringing the clarinet to the forefront as a solo instrument and is still the world’s foremost clarinetist.
