"The Jaspers played with sparkling vitality and great verve...They are polished, engaged, and in tune with one another.

Winner of the prestigious 2012 Cleveland Quartet Award, the Jasper String Quartet has been hailed as "sonically delightful and expressively compelling" (The Strad) and "powerful" (The New York Times).

In conjunction with Astral Artists, the quartet was awarded a 2012 grant from Chamber Music America through its Residency Partnership Program.
