Geoffrey Gordon’s Clarinet Quintet received a resounding world premiere Friday night by Anthony McGill and the JACK Quartet. This first American Music Project concert in New York featured the debut of Gordon’s Quintet, which the New York Times called “darkly seductive” and “a colorful and atmospheric journey.”

JACK also played music of Earle Brown, John Cage and John Luther Adams. The program will be repeated in Chicago March 6, 2016 at Ganz Hall.
