Album Summary

>Gill, Jeremy : Capriccio, for string quartet
Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Recorded here by the Grammy-winning Parker Quartet, Jeremy Gill’s “Capriccio” is a wide-ranging exploration of the potential of the string quartet. “The historical frame of the capriccio allowed me to create a kaleidoscopic array of wildly varying movements that explore all of the technical, expressive, and textural possibilities of the string quartet medium.” (Jeremy Gill) The Massachusetts’s-based pianist, conductor and composer, who has composed in every classical genre, has found his music lauded as “vividly colored” (The New York Times), “exhilarating” (The Philadelphia Inquirer), “intriguing” (The Washington Post), and “work of considerable intensity” (American Record Guide). Formed in 2002 and now in residence at Harvard, the Parker Quartet has rapidly distinguished itself as one its generation’s preeminent ensembles. The New York Times has hailed the quartet as “something extraordinary,” The Washington Post has described them as having “exceptional virtuosity [and] imaginative interpretation,” and The Boston Globe acclaims their “pinpoint precision and spectacular sense of urgency.”
