    Attacca Quartet Begins 2019–20 Concert Season, Featuring Caroline Shaw's "Orange"
    Jorsand Diaz

    Attacca Quartet kicks off its 2019–20 concert season in Italy—at Tempio Valdese in Turin tonight and MTM Teatro Litta in Milan on Tuesday—performing a program that opens with Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw's five-part Plan and Elevation, the centerpiece to her album, Orange. On the album, the Attacca performs that and other pieces by Shaw, as it will throughout the upcoming concert season. Shaw joins the quartet for performances in Red Bank, New York City, and London, and the season's culminating concert at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, in May, for which they will also be joined by Gabriel Kahane to perform music from his album Book of Travelers.

    Orange was released on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records to great critical acclaim earlier this year. "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." Pitchfork says: "The music of Orange exudes joy and a sense of wildness."

    To pick up a copy of Orange, head to your local music store, iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout. The album can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Rhiannon Giddens stopped by NPR, joined by multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi and bassist Jason Sypher, to perform a Tiny Desk Concert of songs from her new album, there is no Other, and her previous album, Freedom Highway. You can watch it here. "Despite its weightiness, Rhiannon Giddens' music is entertaining, and her voice, the melodies, and her accompaniment are engaging," says host Bob Boilen. "But it is music infused with lessons and deep purpose—something all too rare in popular music in my opinion."
