BIOGRAPHIC DETAILS

First prize winners in the 7th Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in 2011, top prize winners and Listeners' Choice award recipients in the 2011 Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, and winners of the Alice Coleman Grand Prize in the 60th annual Coleman Chamber Ensemble Competition in 2006, the internationally acclaimed Attacca Quartet has become one of America's premier young performing ensembles. Praised by The Strad for possessing "maturity beyond its members' years," they were formed at the Juilliard School in 2003 and made their professional debut in 2007 as part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall. From 2011-2013 they served as the Juilliard Graduate Resident String Quartet, and for the 2014-2015 season they were selected as the Quartet in Residence by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
The Attacca Quartet recently completed a recording project of Haydn's masterwork "The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross," arranged by Andrew Yee and the Attacca Quartet. In his review for Gramophone, Donald Rosenberg wrote, "The Attacca Quartet explore the work's range of expressive moods with utmost sensitivity to nuance and interplay .... They triumph in every respect, and are captured in such vivid sound that no telling Haydn detail is allowed to go unheard."Thewholenote.com wrote, "It's easily the most satisfying string version of the work that I've heard."
In 2013, the quartet released the complete works for string quartet by John Adams on Azica Records. It was praised by Steve Smith of The New York Times as a "vivacious, compelling set," describing the Attacca Quartet's playing as "exuberant, funky, and ... exactingly nuanced." The Boston Globe also praised the release, stating, "Few [recent recordings] are as consequential as 'Fellow Traveler,' ... superb performances." The album was the recipient of the 2013 National Federation of Music Clubs Centennial Chamber Music Award. The quartet has been honoured with both the Arthur Foote Award from the Harvard Musical Association and the Lotos Prize in the Arts from the Stecher and Horowitz Foundation.
The 2016-2017 season began with a bang as the Attacca Quartet opened for rock superstar Jeff Lynne's ELO in two sold-out Radio City Music Hall performances. In addition, the quartet will be launching their new "Recently Added" series (first announced in a New York Times feature about the completion of their six-year traversal of all of Haydn's 68 string quartets). The new project is dedicated to living composers who they feel have added significantly to the string quartet canon. The first season is taking place at Brooklyn's National Sawdust and features the music of Caroline Shaw, Michael Ippolito and John Adams. At the same time, the Attacca will present an ongoing series at Trinity Lutheran Church in Manhattan entitled "Based on Beethoven," featuring performances of the complete Beethoven string quartets, paired with works inspired by Beethoven from the "Recently Added" series. The group will serve as the inaugural Ensemble-in-Residence at the School of Music at Texas State University during the 2016-2017 season and will appear in concerts and master classes throughout the United States and South America.
The Attacca Quartet has engaged in extensive educational and community outreach projects, serving as guest artists and teaching fellows at the Lincoln Center Institute, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, Vivace String Camp in New York, the Woodlands ChamberFest in Texas, Virginia Arts Festival, Bravo! Vail Valley and Animato Summer Music Camp at Florida International University in Miami. Since 2006, they have performed in yearly benefit concerts supporting the Parkinson's Disease Foundation's efforts. The members of the Attacca Quartet currently reside in New York City. They are represented by Désirée Halac, Spain, Portugal and Latina America División of Baker Artists, LLC in New York City.


Review (extract) of his recent concert in the USA

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/zhang-741101-movement-piano.html
"Well, they had a tiger by the tail, that's for sure," said my seatmate on Thursday night at Segerstom Concert Hall. The tiger in question was pianist Haochen Zhang, who had just concluded Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 in what seemed like world-record speed. The "they" would have been conductor Carl St.Clair and the Pacific Symphony, who did their level best to match Zhang's energy and velocity, which in the third movement threatened to break the piano free of the earth's gravitational pull and take the entire band with it.

Zhang, a child prodigy and 2009 Van Cliburn Competition winner, easily wears the mantle of the young, world-class soloist. Slight and intense, the 26-year-old wunderkind is fascinating to watch. Zhang's technique is unorthodox: he sometimes hammers individual keys with a scrunched-up thumb and forefinger, and at times his hands are splayed flat across the keys during fast passages, a real no-no according to piano teachers. His octave technique looks all wrong, too; his wrists seem too stiff and inflexible.

But as my old jazz teacher used to say, it ain't wrong if it comes out right. Zhang's sound, for the most part, is meticulously clean (there were some blurred passages in the final movement, mainly because his tempi were approaching the speed of light).

PRESSEMITTEILUNG

DIE STOMPERS SIND WIEDER DA

the Bourbon Street Stompers

Die Liebhaber von klassischem New Orleans Jazz werden sich darüber freuen dass, organisiert durch Concerts Costa Blanca, die populären Burbon Street Stompers im Oktober zu ihrem wichtigsten Besuch zurückkommen.

Joshua StewartDie international bekannten Stompers aus Essen, Deutschland, sind jetzt im 21.Jahr nach ihrer Gründung und besuchen die Costa Blanca zum 5. mal seit 2009. Sie werden wieder begleitet vom New Orleans Jazz und Opernsänger Joshua Stewart. Dieser gab sein Debut mit der Gruppe im letzten Jahr an der Costa Blanca. Im Jahr 2012 begleitete die Sängerin Betty Berent aus Hamburg die Band. Josh und Betty haben sich bisher nicht getroffen und noch nie zusammen gesungen. Im letzten Jahr trafen sich Josh und die Band erstmals eine Stunde vor dem Konzert. Dies ist möglich durch ihre Professionalität und man hatte das Gefühl, dass sie seit Jahren zusammen spielen.

Die Tour beginnt am 17. Oktober in dem schönen Palau in Altea, wo die Gruppe erstmals 2009 vor fast 1.000 Zuhörern auftrat. Am Samstag, den 18. Oktober spielen sie wiederum in dem schönen Auditorium Teulada Moraira, das sie bereits 3 mal gefüllt haben. Am Sonntag, den 19. Oktober treten sie in dem grossen Auditori de Diputacion de Alicante (ADDA) auf, wo sie im letzten Oktober erstmals spielten. Leider kann wegen Verpflichtungen im Münchener Opernhaus Joshua Stewart am Sonntag in Alicante nicht auftreten. Betty Berent wird in allen drei Konzerten singen.

Zu den Reservierungen der drei Konzerte noch folgendes:

Altea: Rufnummer 96 688 1924 donnerstags zwischen 16.30h und 19.30h, oder Verkauf zwei Stunden vor dem Konzert, oder online unter palaualtea.reservaentradas.com ***

Teulada: an der Kasse des Auditoriums von 11h bis 13h und von 18h bis 20h , jeweils mittwochs bis samstags, im Rathaus von Teulada und im Espai la Senieta zwischen 9h und 15h von montags bis freitags oder online bei instanticket bei 902 444 300, oder www.instanticket.es ***.

Alicante: durch instanticket unter 902 444 300 oder an der Kasse ab zwei Stunden vor dem Konzert, oder online unter www.instanticket.es ***.
