Attacca Quartet & American Repertory Ballet
Grammy Award-winning Attacca Quartet has the dexterity to glide between the music of the 18th through to 21st century living composers' repertoire that has placed them as one of the most versatile and outstanding ensembles of the moment – a quartet for modern times. Magic occurs when this top ensemble performs with dancers from the American Repertory Ballet, the beauty of two art forms performing together as a seamless whole.
“We’re living in a golden age of string quartets...It’s hard to disagree when you hear the vibrant young players in New York’s Attacca Quartet.” — NPR
