    Watch: Caroline Shaw, Attacca Quartet Perform for Lincoln Center
    Lincoln Center

    Composer Caroline Shaw performs her song "And So" with Attacca Quartet in a new video for Lincoln Center directed by Lew Baldwin at SoHo Creative Studio, which you can watch below. The artists come together again next week to perform an all-Shaw program, including works from their album Orange, in a free concert at Lincoln Center’s David Rubenstein Atrium on Thursday, November 14, as part of the White Light Festival.

    "It's Shaw the singer and composer who shines in this video," NPR Music's Tom Huizenga says of the "And So" performance. "Shaw is backed by the Attacca Quartet, which plays without vibrato and finds vast coloration in the composer's evocative approach to pizzicato ... Shaw's voice, at turns ferocious and tender, emits a purity of purpose."

    Huizenga had named Orange to NPR's list of the Best New Albums of the month upon its release on New Amsterdam / Nonesuch Records in April. "An arresting tribute to the enduring art of the string quartet ... adroitly expressed by members of the Attacca Quartet ... Think string quartet music is just a fusty classical formula? Orange proves it is spectacularly alive and evolving."

    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.

    The Attacca performs songs from Orange at Kings Place in London on November 20, again in New York City at the Miller Theatre on February 6, and at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, joined by Gabriel Kahane for works from his abum Book of Travelers, on May 3.
