    Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw’s Orange, performed by Attacca Quartet, is out now on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records. Orange, which features six of Shaw’s pieces for string quartet, is the first full-length album to exclusively feature works by Shaw. "Completely gorgeous in so many ways," exclaims BBC Radio 3. "It hits you everywhere, all at once." "A love letter to the string quartet," says NPR. "[W]hen you hear all the imaginative sounds on Orange, you know you're listening to the voice of a strong composer."

A thirty-city Mandy Patinkin in Concert: Diaries begins in October 2019; details will be announced this summer.

Artist Spotlight

  • Acclaimed as "a mercurial artist whose oeuvre embraces post-punk flamboyance, chamber music elegance, and much more" (New Yorker), composer William Brittelle creates genre-fluid electro-acoustic music that has been lauded by NPR's All Songs Considered, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Nation, and more. Brittelle's works have been presented at venues around the world including the Kennedy Center and the Metropolitan Museum of Art,...

  • On Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw's album Orange, Attacca Quartet performs six of her pieces for string quartet. The string quartet form "has existed for hundreds of years, but there's something, for me, beautiful and ritualistic about coming back to that form," says Shaw. "This album is a celebration of the simple, immediate, unadorned beauty of a natural, everyday, familiar thing."

  • Rhiannon Giddens’s album there is no Other, recorded with the multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, was produced by Joe Henry and tracked over five days in Dublin. The album is at once a condemnation of “othering” and a celebration of the spread of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience.

  • Pianist Jeremy Denk's new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, presents a centuries-long story of constantly emerging possibilities and styles of musical expression, an evolution drawn in a single arc by the music of twenty-four different composers, from Guillaume de Machaut to György Ligeti. The Telegraph says: "Quite exhilarating."

  • Joshua Redman Quartet's Come What May is the first album in almost two decades from the saxophonist and his longtime friends and colleagues pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. "Mr. Redman's place is secure as one of the most effusive and engaging tenor saxophonists in straight-ahead jazz," says the New York Times, and the Quartet is "well attuned to his language of elastic tenacity."
