The Jupiter String Quartet, formed in 2001, is one of the most talented and exciting groups of young American classical musicians. The members are violinists Nelson Lee and Megan Freivogel McDonough, violist Liz Freivogel and cellist Daniel McDonough.

Their recording of Dmitri Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 3 and Benjamin Britten's String Quartet No. 2, captures two of the most musically powerful reflections of the dark chaos of the World War II era. The JSQ interpret the quartets with profound insight and a breathtaking verve.


Britten, Benjamin : Quartet for Strings no 2 in C major, Op. 36
Shostakovich, Dmitri : Quartet for Strings no 3 in F major, Op. 73

Reviews
"The Jupiter Quartet offer an unforgettable performance¦the pleasure they take in one another's musical company was palpable¦they told its [Shostakovich Quartet #3] story and communicated the composer's passionate emotions and bleak worldview." - The Boston Globe
