Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw’s Orange, performed by Attacca Quartet, is out now on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records. Orange, which features six of Shaw’s pieces for string quartet, is the first full-length album to exclusively feature works by Shaw. It is also the first release in a new partnership between the two record labels, established with the goal of enabling contemporary American composers to realize creative ambitions that might not otherwise be achievable.

“Completely gorgeous in so many ways,” exclaims BBC Radio 3. “It hits you everywhere, all at once.” “A love letter to the string quartet,” says NPR. “[W]hen you hear all the imaginative sounds on Orange, you know you're listening to the voice of a strong composer.” “[T]he pieces on Orange shoot off in thrilling and unpredictable directions,” says Pitchfork’s 8.0 review. “The music of Orange exudes joy and a sense of wildness.”
