  • Attacca Quartet

'They may be a relatively new quartet’, opined the Washington Post, ‘but already they come very close to epitomizing the string quartet ideal’. Champions of John Adams and Caroline Shaw, the ensemble also includes a recent work by Paul Wiancko based on a Japanese legend. The Attacca Quartet won a GRAMMY award in 2020 for their album Orange in the category ‘Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance’.
