The internationally acclaimed ATTACCA QUARTET returns to Texas State for its continuing series of short residencies. Formed at the Juilliard School in 2003, their professional debut in 2007 was part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. For the 2014-2015 season, they were selected as the Quartet in Residence by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The Attacca Quartet’s most recent album release included string quartet works of TXST composer Michael Ippolito. These works were performed as part of the group’s residency at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, including three concerts of works by living composers.
The Attacca Quartet recently completed a recording project of Haydn’s masterwork “The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross,” arranged by Andrew Yee and the Quartet. In his review for Gramophone, Donald Rosenberg wrote, “The Attacca Quartet explore the work’s range of expressive moods with utmost sensitivity to nuance and interplay .... They triumph in every respect, and are captured in such vivid sound that no telling Haydn detail is allowed to go unheard.” In 2013, the quartet released the complete works for string quartet by John Adams on Azica Records. It was praised by Steve Smith of The New York Times as a “vivacious, compelling set,” describing the Attacca Quartet’s playing as “exuberant, funky, and … exactingly nuanced.” The Boston Globe also praised the release, citing “superb performances.” The album was the recipient of the 2013 National Federation of Music Clubs Centennial Chamber Music Award. The Attacca Quartet is represented by Baker Artists, LLC.
