Everything Changes, Nothing Changes
JACK Quartet's first self-curated multi-composer disc, "Everything Changes, Nothing Changes," music by Sabrina Schroeder and Tyshawn Sorey
JACK Quartet has recorded 35 albums in our thirteen years as a quartet. Having partnered with composers in their mission to document their work as a part of portrait discs that represent career milestones and artistic achievements, more recently JACK has embraced a more active role in commissioning new work. In 2019, we are planning our first self-curated multi-composer disc, Everything Changes, Nothing Changes, featuring new works by Sabrina Schroeder and Tyshawn Sorey.
The title is taken from the first quartet by Tyshawn Sorey, written for and premiered by JACK in July 2018, at the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity as part of the EQ: Evolution of the String Quartet program. Sorey’s piece is a tour-de-force of subtle voicings, beautifully shifting harmonies, and a meltingly perfect pacing of pulsating string sounds over a long form.
