The Jupiter String Quartet, an “ensemble of eloquent intensity,” performs to acclaim across the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and South America in the world’s finest halls—including Krannert Center’s Foellinger Great Hall, at the University of Illinois where the Jupiter is quartet-in-residence (New Yorker). Joining the quartet for this concert is emerging Canadian baritone Tyler Duncan, who brings consummate musicianship, vocal beauty, and interpretive insight to recital, concert, and operatic literature. “Possessed of a refined, burnished voice with flexibility and ample strength in reserve,” Duncan holds significant international performance and competition experience and a “glittering career ahead” (Chicago Classical Review, Opera Canada). In addition to works for string quartet and voice, Franz Schubert’s driving, dramatic “Death and the Maiden” quartet will be featured.
Barber: “Dover Beach”
