ETHEL Quartet Performs Jacob TV

The string quartet ETHEL performs at JS:30. (Stephanie Black)

Each Thursday at 7 pm this winter, stream Q2 Music for weekly Webcasts of new-music shows as recorded live at premiere venues around New York City. This week, the adventurous ETHEL String Quartet performs the eccentric, boundary-bending music of Dutch composer Jacob Ter Veldhuis.

A Reich-influenced Dutch composer with a political agenda, composer Jacob TV is in fact at home enough in the culture he satirizes so astutely to have won ardent champions among the highest ranks of American performers. His music is presented here by ETHEL, a celebrated post-classical string quartet that performs adventurous music of the past four decades, with emphasis on works composed since 1995.



This concert, hosted by John Schaefer of WNYC's New Sounds and Soundcheck, was recorded live from Merkin Concert Hall on March 11th, 2010.
