The Attacca Quartet are practically veterans of the Crypt Sessions, having played both Haydn's Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross, and Beethoven's staggeringly epic Op. 132 String Quartet... here, they come with something completely different - the string quartets of contemporary composer Caroline Shaw. Aside from winning a Pulitzer Prize, and having Kanye West as a fan of her work, Caroline is an all-around champion and luminous, numinous soul, whose music manages to both acknowledge the past, while simultaneously looking toward the future.
In a fitting conclusion to an historic season, the CMSD returns to Orchestra Hall, its home for more than 20 of its 75 years. Four of America’s most exciting young string quartets -- the Attacca, Catalyst, Dover and Harlem Quartets -- are joined by the legendary Leon Fleisher for a truly memorable season finale program.
The concert opens with a game of musical chairs in Mendelssohn’s youthful Octet, followed by Fleisher as piano soloist in Mozart’s lovely Concerto in A Major, K. 414. The concert continues with the world premiere of a new work by Catalyst Quartet member and composer Jessie Montgomery, and concludes with Fleisher as conductor in Tchaikovsky’s stirring Serenade for Strings.
