    Jorsand Diaz

    Attacca Quartet gives a first listen to music from Caroline Shaw’s Orange in a live performance at The Greene Space in New York City tonight, ahead of the album’s release on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records next Friday. The performance is part of a twenty-four-hour marathon of free events programmed by New York Public Radio to take place at The Greene Space in celebration of the venue’s tenth anniversary. It will be streamed live at thegreenespace.org, starting at 7 AM ET, including Attacca’s performance, which begins at 9:30pm ET.

    Orange, which features six of Shaw’s pieces for string quartet, is the first full-length album to exclusively feature works by the Pulitzer Prize–winning composer and is performed by Attacca Quartet on the record. Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an instant download of the track “Plan & Elevation: IV. The Orangery,” and an exclusive print of a painting created and hand-signed by Shaw and Attacca Quartet.

    Kronos Quartet live-scores filmmaker Sam Green’s A Thousand Thoughts: A Live Documentary at the Detroit Film Theater at the Detroit Institute of Arts tonight, as part of Freep Film Festival. The multimedia experience—called “mind-blowing” by Newsweek and “magical" by the Los Angeles Times—blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with some of the many artists with whom Kronos has collaborated, like Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man, and Terry Riley.

    Kronos and Green give A Thousand Thoughts its New York premiere at Town Hall on April 25.

The band tours in support of its 2018 album, Free Yourself Up, named one of the Best Records of 2018 by Pop Matters, which says it “cleverly pulls off the rare hat-trick of not only being the band's most instantly accessible album but also their best.”

    The Brad Mehldau Trio—Larry Grenadier on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums—continues its five-day residency at Jazz St. Louis through the weekend, with early and late shows tonight and Saturday, and an early evening concert on Sunday.
