“Pulitzer prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw reveals all facets of her dynamic musicianship in this collaboration with the young, New York-based Attacca Quartet. Hers is an art which converses with the musical past without fear of fresh experiment. After three of her ingenious and beguiling quartets, she will sing new songs she has composed for herself and the Attacca, returning in the second half as a violist in Mendelssohn’s glorious quintet.”

Composer, violinist, and singer Caroline Shaw became the youngest recipient ever of the Pulitzer Prize in Music in 2013, and she’s since taken both the pop and classical music worlds by storm. A “breakout star of New York’s contemporary classical scene” (The Guardian), Shaw is a unique creative voice whose music paints luscious soundscapes with moments of discord and unexpected resolutions. The Attacca Quartet and Sō Percussion, both close collaborators of the composer, perform a program of her works from the last decade.
