We're excited to announce Recently Added, a new series exploring the string quartet works of contemporary composers. This project is devoted to living composers we feel have made significant contributions to the repertoire, and we'll celebrate their work by performing their complete string quartets.

Season one took place at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, and featured the music of Caroline Shaw, Michael Ippolito, and John Adams (whose complete works we recorded for our Fellow Traveler album.)

Our very first "Recently Added" concert will feature the brilliant composer and our friend, Caroline Shaw. In 2013 she became the youngest recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for music for her work "Partita for 8 voices". We became interested in Caroline because of her prolific and amazing string quartet output. Her sense of wonder and joy pours over her works, and we are so delighted to share them with the world!
