Jasper String Quartet
with Mimi Stillman, flute

Sunday, November 17, 2019 at 4pm


  "The Jaspers... match their sounds perfectly, as if each swelling chord were coming out of a single, impossibly well-tuned organ, instead of four distinct instruments" (New Haven Advocate). "Powerful!" (The New York Times). “Sonically delightful and expressively compelling” (The Strad).

Appearing with the Jaspers, flutist Mimi Stillman’s performances “tend to activate ear, heart — and brain.” (The New York Times). She projects a “Full-toned charisma” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

The program will include Mozart’s masterpiece, his D major Flute Quartet, framed by solo flute pieces, and flute quintets by Kuhlau and Zhou Tian.
