About Beethoven and Shaw

Beethoven String Quartet in G major, Op. 18 #2 (1801) Shaw Punctum (2009) and Valencia (2012) Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was a German composer and pianist. He remains one of the most admired composers in the history of Western music. Of the Op. 18 string quartets, this one is the most grounded in 18th-century musical tradition. Caroline Adelaide Shaw (born 1982) is an American composer. She was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2013 for her Partita for 8 Voices and the 2022 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Classical Composition for Narrow Sea. Shaw has worked with a range of artists including Rosalía, Renée Fleming, and Yo Yo Ma. “Punctum is essentially an exercise in nostalgia, inspired by Roland Barthes’ description of the “unexpected” in photographs and in particular by his description of the elusive “Winter Garden” photo in his book Camera Lucida.” “There is something exquisite about the construction of an ordinary orange. Hundreds of brilliantly colored, impossibly delicate vesicles of juice, ready to explode. It is a thing of nature so simple, yet so complex and extraordinary. I channeled Glasser's intuitive approach to melody and texture, such that Valencia became an untethered embrace of the architecture of the common Valencia orange. It is also a kind of celebration of awareness of the natural, unadorned food that is still available to us.
