About this playlist
Over the last decade, New York-based composer, violinist and vocalist, Caroline Shaw has become one of the most important figures on the contemporary classical music scene. In 2013, she became the youngest composer to ever win the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Music, with her work 'Partita for 8 Voices'. She wrote this unique piece for the vocal group Roomful of Teeth, of which she is a member. Her achievements, however, go way beyond the classical genre alone. Shaw has also produced for Kanye West, Nas, and has contributed to releases by The National and Arcade Fire.
