Notes & Reviews:
In 2013, the Attacca Quartet completed a recording project of the complete works for string quartet by John Adams for Azica Records. The review in the New York Times praised this "vivacious, compelling set," describing the quartet's playing as "exuberant, funky and... exactingly nuanced". The Boston Globe also praised the release, stating: "Few [recent recordings] are as consequential as 'Fellow Traveler'... superb performances." The album was the recipient of the 2013 Nat'l Federation of Music Clubs Centennial Chamber Music Award. The hope for "our" version of Haydn's Seven Last Words (a new arrangement by the Attacca Quartet's cellist Andree Yee) is that it sounds "organic" enough that even one who has heard the piece performed often will not consciously register anything has been done at all. It is further hoped this version retains the spirit and intimacy of a "home" version for string quartet, while seamlessly incorporating enough depth to deem it worthy of the concert hall.
