SAN FRANCISCO CLASSICAL VOICE -- Seeing a great quartet play one of the most important works of the 20th century, without having to schlep to Civic Center or pay an arm and a leg? It was like a dream.
San Francisco State University’s Morrison Artists Series presents free concerts featuring world-class chamber musicians, and Sunday’s season finale was the JACK Quartet (violinists Christopher Otto and Austin Wulliman, violist John Pickford Richards, and cellist Jay Campbell). The crux of the program was Elliott Carter’s Pulitzer Prize-winning String Quartet No. 3 — an exceptionally good value.
