Attacca Quartet Presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures
Caroline Shaw: Entr’acte, Evergreen, and additional compositions for string quartet
With the dexterity to glide between music of the 18th and 21st centuries, Attacca Quartet has become one of the most versatile and outstanding ensembles of the moment. The Brooklyn-based quartet performs works from its two albums of music by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw: Orange and the forthcoming Evergreen. Heralded as “a love letter to the string quartet” by NPR, Orange was the first full-length album to exclusively feature works by Shaw and won a Grammy for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance of 2020.
