    Exuberant in sound and spirit, New York’s enterprising Attacca Quartet is one of America’s premier young performing ensembles. Embodying the string quartet ideal, the strikingly individual players come together in a single eloquent voice, whether in master repertoire or new works by living composers. Formed at The Juilliard School in 2003, recordings include their arrangement of Haydn’s masterwork The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross; Fellow Traveler, the only collection of John Adams’s complete string quartet works; and Michael Ippolito’s Songlines.
