- Roman, Jack Quartet play it safe in Herbst
By Joshua Kosman - Saturday Oct 14, 2017
Once upon a time, there used to be jazz LPs with titles like “Smooth and Easy” or “In a Sentimental Mood,” where a firebrand improviser would show off a more mellow, approachable side. Often the cover art involved a smoking jacket. I was reminded of that bygone cultural phenomenon during Friday night’s program by the Jack Quartet and cellist Joshua Roman, presented in Herbst Theatre by San Francisco Performances. These are among the boldest and most exciting chamber artists the world of contemporary music has to offer, and every moment of the recital was a reminder of their prowess.

- Bach, ‘Well-Tempered Clavier,’ Book 1
By Joshua Kosman - Monday Jul 31, 2017
The preludes and fugues that make up Bach’s “Well-Tempered Clavier” operate on multiple levels at once — they’re a compilation of techniques for keyboard writing, a polemic on the subject of tuning and a master class in the art of counterpoint.[...] when you arrange these pieces for string quartet, as violinist Nicholas Kitchen of the Borromeo String Quartet has done very deftly here, those agendas take different paths.Bach’s counterpoint shines through far more clearly here than it can in the hands of even the most technically adept pianist or harpsichordist — with one string player on each melodic line, the interplay of individual voices becomes almost glaringly bright.[...] the task of re-crafting Bach’s keyboard textures for strings — particularly in the moody, unpredictable preludes — spurs Kitchen to appealing feats of invention.The result is a familiar body of music cast in a wonderful new light, and the quartet’s performances rise to the occasion.
