The JACK Quartet were called “superheroes of the new music world” by The Boston Globe, and there could be no more apt description for this endlessly adventurous ensemble. They’ve played pieces completely in the dark, performed on a raft in the middle of a lake, and more. For The Angel’s Share, they will play an extraordinary program that follows a musical thread from medieval plainsong through to the present day, drawing sonic similarities from wildly divergent works and echoing the timelessness of the space surrounding them.

The Program: Solage – Fumeux Fume part Fumee; Rodericus – Angelorum Psalat arr. Christopher Otto; Thomas Morley – Cristes Crosse; Chaya Czernowin – String Quartet; Brian Ferneyhough – Dum Transisset; Marc Sabat – Jean-Phillipe Rameau

The Performers: Christopher Otto, violin; Austin Wulliman, violin; John Pickford Richards, viola; Jay Campbell, cello

The Angel’s Share, a new series of opera and chamber music concerts, takes place in Green-Wood’s Catacombs. One of the oldest structures in the 478-acre National Historic Landmark Cemetery, the Catacombs were built in the 1850s and are normally closed to the public. The series takes its name from the distiller’s term for whiskey that evaporates while maturing in the barrel, thus going to the angels.

Each performance includes a pre-concert reception at sunset overlooking New York harbor and the Manhattan skyline.

$75 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $80 for non-members
