Chamber Music Masterclass with Attacca Quartet
Virtual attendance limited to Duke students and faculty only. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. The Washington Post wrote of the Attacca Quartet: "They may be a relatively young ensemble, but already they come very close to epitomizing the string quartet ideal: four strikingly individual players with the ability to speak eloquently in one voice." In 2019, the Attacca, passionate advocates for new music, became the first ensemble to release an album exclusively featuring works by composer Caroline Shaw, a North Carolina native who remains the youngest recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Music. NPR described the album, Orange, as "a love letter to the string quartet," and it went on to win a GRAMMY. This masterclass is presented in association with Duke Performances. Attacca made its Duke Performances and Chamber Arts Society debut in September with a virtual concert.
