The ensemble’s first album with the label is due out in July
The Attacca Quartet has signed exclusively to Sony Classical, with Real Life, their album of electronic music arrangements due out in July. The first track of the album - Electric Pow Wow Drum by The Halluci Nation - is already available on streaming platforms. A second album, featuring music by Philip Glass, Arvo Pärt and selection of Renaissance composers, is scheduled for release in the autumn.
Of the signing, Per Hauber, President of Sony Classical, said: ‘The Attacca Quartet uniquely combine infinite creativity with uncompromising quality. The first two projects for this year already promise to be very exciting. Everyone at the label is extremely enthusiastic and, we look forward to working with them!’
The Attacca Quartet commented: ‘We’ve always loved to dream big and imagine the grandest expressions a string quartet can make. Partnering with Sony Classical has inspired us to think even bigger than before and to fully realize our dreams, both our most personal statements and most outlandish.’
