John Adams: Attacca String Quartet
April 2, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$29
“Recently Added” is a 3 concert arc. It is an exploration of the complete works of living composers who have made significant additions to the string quartet repertoire. This is a follow-up to our project called “the 68” where we played the complete string quartets of Haydn. This installment will feature the works of John Adams.
“Over the past eight years our relationship with John Adams has defined who we are as a modern string quartet. It is a unique experience to work so intimately with a composer who will define an era of composition. Since our Alice Tully premiere of his first quartet, we have released an album of his complete string quartets and premiered his works in many countries around the world. We can’t wait to present his complete string quartets to you in marathon concert at one of our favorite places.”

About the Artists
The Attacca Quartet recently completed a recording project of Haydn’s masterwork “the Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross” arranged by Andrew Yee and the Attacca Quartet. In his review for Gramophone, Donald Rosenberg wrote “The Attacca Quartet explore the works range of expressive moods with utmost sensitivity to nuance and interplay. . . They triumph in every respect, and are captured in such vivid sound that no telling Haydn detail is allowed to go unheard.”Thewholenote.com wrote “...It’s easily the most satisfying string version of the work that I’ve heard.”
