ATTACCA QUARTET

Andrew Yee, cello

First prize winners of the 7th Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in 2011, the internationally acclaimed Attacca Quartet has become one of America’s premier young performing ensembles. Praised by Strad for possessing "maturity beyond its members’ years," they recently completed a recording project of the complete works for string quartet by John Adams (released on Azica Records in March 2013). In his review for The New York Times, Steve Smith described the Attacca Quartet’s playing as "exuberant, funky, and…exactingly nuanced."  The Boston Globe also praised the release, stating: "Few [recent recordings] are as consequential as ‘Fellow Traveler,’…superb performances."

 

Their Bay Chamber debut program, "Based on Beethoven," is part of the quartet’s current project featuring performances of the complete Beethoven string quartets, paired with works inspired by Beethoven from their "Recently Added" series. Composer Caroline Shaw is the youngest-ever winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music.

 

"…the concert was, in a word, sensational…The Attacca players handled their roles with precision and passion, to deeply moving effect." The New York Times
