The 17th annual international music festival American Spring will resound in DOX+ offering the Grammy-winning Attacca Quartet. As described by The Nation, one of this quartet’s virtues is that it “lives in the present aesthetically, without rejecting the virtues of the musical past”. It is its ability to adapt both musical expression and technique to cover repertoire from the 18th to the 21st century. This is to rank the ensemble among one of the most versatile and distinctive up-to-date ensembles – the quartet for the current classical repertoire. The concert will feature a repertoire curated by John Adams for the American Spring Festival. It is organised in cooperation with Prague Music Performance.
