Join us for a Digital Discovery concert with the multi-talented cellist Andrew Yee, a founding member of the award-winning Attacca Quartet. Yee will perform works by new music composers Ernst Reijseger, Mingjia Chen, Caroline Shaw, and past National Sawdust Hildegard Competition winner, inti figgis-vizueta.
Cellist Andrew Yee has been praised by Michael Kennedy of the London Telegraph as "spellbindingly virtuosic." Trained at the Juilliard School, they are a founding member of the internationally acclaimed Attacca Quartet who have released several albums to critical acclaim including Yee's arrangement of Haydn’s “Seven Last Words” which Thewholenote.com praised as "... easily the most satisfying string version of the work that I’ve heard." They were the quartet-in-residence at the Met Museum in 2014, and have won the Osaka and Coleman international string quartet competitions. Their recording of the string quartets of Caroline Shaw won a Grammy for best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble performance.
