Last week, Caroline Shaw was featured by Kanye West in a live performance. Say what you will about Kanye, but he has immaculate taste in music. Here is a profile on Caroline published today in Pitchfork (an online music magazine) including musical examples. I love what she does with the timbre of the voice. The thing for string quartet is fun and the quartet performing it does a very convincing job of it. There's also a cool piece for viola and choir. I think I like the Allemande best. I admire how her music manages to be serious and fun at the same time.
Speaking of awesome violinists I went to school with... The Pulitzer committee went in a new direction this year, giving the award for music to a violinist named Caroline Shaw for her for 8 Voices. She's the youngest winner ever! NPR Article Hooray for giving the award to a performer!
