The internationally acclaimed JACK Quartet performs three of Cages late works for string quartet, Music for Four (1984), Four (1989) and the exceptionally rarely heard Five3 (1991) for string quartet and trombone. Unlike the chaotic, multi-centered works of the 1960s and 70s, these pieces reflect a more restrained and nuanced aspect of Cage’s compositional voice, using microtones and near stasis to evoke a quiet and Zen-like quality.
