When we’re "whole," we’re strong. And it’s no accident that the Jupiter String Quartet is named after the Roman god associated with happiness and strength. As the Richmond
Times Dispatch
remarked, “Not just any musicians could pull off such a blazing performance.”

The Boston-based quartet lives up to its august name on another level, too. At the time of its formation, Jupiter was the most prominent planet in the night sky. Similarly, in the world of music, the Jupiter String Quartet’s prominence continues to grow. “String quartets, like fine wines, get better with age; the Jupiters are a very fine vintage indeed,” wrote the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
