CAG CONGRATULATES PUBLIQUARTET QUARTET ON GRAMMY NOMINATION!

We are delighted to congratulate the indelible PUBLIQuartet on the nomination of their new CD Freedom and Faith for a 2020 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance! The album was released this year by Bright Shiny Things.

Each of the composers on this album claims their seat at the table of history with distinction, virtuosity, and a very necessary subversive power. Expressing a unique and personal relationship to Faith, their music touches on the resilience many marginalized composers must maintain, tapping into Faith in the face of oppression, and sometimes using Faith rhetorically to be accepted by the status quo. Despite variations on themes of oppression repeated throughout the eras, these composers’ power, sound, and expression continue to resonate in many shapes and forms: Despite history, their spirits continue to inspire and ring on.
