The Jupiter String Quartet, formed in 2001, is an intimate group of virtuoso musicians: violinists Nelson Lee and MeganFreivogel, violist Liz Freivogel (older sister of Meg), and cellist Daniel McDonough (husband of Meg, brother- in-law of Liz).

They have enjoyed playing in such venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, Boston’s Jordan Hall, Mexico City’s Palacio de Bellas Artes, and Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center.
“The Jupiter Quartet, for which the piece was written, played it with lush tone, a fine sense of color and both energy and polish,” said New York Times’ Allan Kozinn.
