After their succesful debut album “Statements” (COBRA 0035), the prize-winning Cuarteto Quiroga returns to the studio with another innovative and bold recording. 

The repertoire of the new album "(R)evolutions" shows how Arnold Schönberg, Anton Webern and Alban Berg, departing from the musical language they inherited from the european musical tradition in which they were educated, evolved naturally and progressively to unfold a completely new sonic universe.

The album illustrates how these genius composers did not have as their aesthetic target to deliberately break up with their past, but to honour it and to be faithful to its heritage.

Quotes for their debut album 'Statements" by the international press:
* “Target in full, (...) sensational debut recording” (Scherzo)
* “Sophisticated, meticulous (...) aesthetic manifesto (...) one could not wish for anything more” (Volkskrant)
* “A recording adventure to be acclaimed” (El Cultural)
* “String quartet playing of a rarely unheard beauty” (Klassieke Zaken)
* Awarded as Best Classical Music Album 2012 by the Spanish Independent Recording Union, 

 

"Het Cuarteto Quiroga zit vol souplesse en is breed van timbre."
