Attacca Quartet
Michael Ippolito, composer
Completely grounded in the 21st century, this recording features the music of Michael Ippolito, composed between 2009 and 2015. "I find the quartet to be an endlessly faschinating medium," Ippolito said. "It has such a rich repertoire and legacy...and yet, the quartet isn't limited by that tradition. It is a chameleon ensemble that lends itself to being reimagined." Formed at Juilliard in 2003, the Attacca Quartet has won numerous awards and is currently the Quartet in Residence at Texas State University School of Music. Here is the Attacca Quartet at a NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert, performing music by John Adams, Haydn and Michael Ippolito:
