Jasper String Quartet at Edwards

The Jasper String Quartet performed at Edwards last night as part of the Bravo Vail Music Festival. 

This was one of the free concerts, so it was short and sweet, hit a few highlights, and was in a very casual setting that was comfortable for families and children.  Due to my own stupidity, we arrived late and missed the first two pieces on the program, but heard the final three. they played the Barber Adagio as beautifully as I have ever heard it, followed by excerpts from Mendelssohn and Beethoven.  The venue is gorgeous, although the acoustics were not perfect, but considering it was a family-friendly (and free) concert, I think it would be tough to find a better location. 

Tonight begins the series we are most interested in, a series of concerts featuring old and new music, with special guests.
