Haydn

From Die Sieben Letzten Worte unseres Erlösers am Kreuze: Introduction, Sonata I, Sonata II, Sonata III, Sonata IV, Sonata V, Sonata VI, Sonata VII, Il terremoto

Shaw

From Evergreen: Stem, Water, Root, Moss,

The Attacca Quartet is a rising star. Their collaboration with Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw – not only a celebrity within the classical scene but beyond as well, for her universal language and collaborations with the likes of Kanye West – earned them a Grammy for their joint album Orange.
But all the attention for the collaboration with Shaw almost obscures one of their earlier recordings: Haydn’s Die sieben letzten Worte.

Die sieben letzten Worte unseres Erlösers am Kreuze is a monumental work by Haydn and definitely one of the highlights of the string quartet repertoire. Each movement is based on one the last words of Christ on the cross. And although Haydn lived in a time of reason, the Attacca Quartet plays it with a range of emotions: hope, despair, love, reconciliation, fear and resignation. The Attacca Quartet weaves together the works of Haydn and Shaw into an evening in which old and new and different spiritualities flow into each other.
