    Caroline Shaw, Attacca Quartet's "Orange" Nominated for BBC Music Magazine Award

    Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw’s Orange, performed by Attacca Quartet, has been shortlisted for a BBC Music Magazine Award in the Chamber category. A jury of expert critics from BBC Music Magazine selected three albums in each of seven categories, with each shortlist representing the best of the classical recordings reviewed in the magazine in 2019. Winners will be chosen by public vote, which begins today and ends February 19; winners will be announced at a ceremony at Kings Place in London on April 22. To have your say, visit classical-music.com/awards and vote for your favorite now.

    "There were hundreds of wonderful recordings released in 2019, so it wasn’t an easy task to pick our shortlists," says Oliver Condy, editor of BBC Music Magazine. "But it’s also a joy to celebrate these twenty-one distinctive and brilliant nominees and I’m looking forward to discovering which ones the public will vote for."

    "Unlike much contemporary music, Shaw's compositions exemplify what Simon Rattle long ago said about John Adams's essence—that there's always the sense of 'moving in space,'" wrote David Nice in the original five-star BBC Music Magazine review of Orange. "The sophistication and dynamic refinement of the Attacca Quartet is reflected in a full, truthful recording."

    To pick up a copy of Orange, head to your local music store, iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, 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.
