Cassatt performs standard repertory in addition to the works they commission from contemporary composers. They perform the piece "Anna" on vocalist Gisburg's 1998 Tzadik release, Trust. At the time of the CD's release, they served as Quartet-in-Residence at East Carolina University, Syracuse University, and at various festivals along the East Coast, including N.Y.C.'s Bang on a Can Festival. ~ Joslyn Layne Read less
