“I like to think of as collectors of joy,” says their cellist, Andrew Yee. New York’s Grammy Award-winning Attacca (pronounced ah-TAK-ah) Quartet “believes in and celebrates” music of the 20th and 21st centuries; in this performance, which bridges the Robert Mann Chamber Music Series and our week celebrating the Music of Today, the Quartet brings raucous and funky music from contemporary greats Caroline Shaw (who is “like a fifth member of our quartet,” says Yee), Gabriella Smith (whose Carrot Revolution was commissioned by composer John Adams for the Quartet), Philip Glass, L.A. producer and DJ Flying Lotus, and more.
