Attacca Quartet

Friday, September 4 @ 7:00pm PDT

Grammy award-winning Attacca Quartet, as described by The Nation, “lives in the present aesthetically, without rejecting the virtues of the musical past”, and it is this dexterity to glide between the music of the 18th through to 21st century living composer’s repertoire that has placed them as one of the most versatile and outstanding ensembles of the moment – a quartet for modern times. This concert is presented in partnership with Chamber Music Society Detroit.
