Review for Cuarteto Quiroga:
Cuarteto Quiroga, the exciting young Spanish string quartet will give their Chattanooga debut at this concert. The Cuarteto Quiroga has established itself as one of the most dynamic and unique quartets of its generation. The quartet has won international acclaim from critics and audiences alike for its distinctive personality as well as its bold and original approach to the string quartet repertoire. The group takes its name from the Galician violinist Manuel Quiroga, one of the most outstanding string players in Spanish music history together with Pau Casals and Pablo Sarasate. The concert will feature works by Haydn, early Schoenberg, and Brahms performed by this prize-winning quartet, the quartet-in-residence at Fundación Museo Cerralbo in Madrid.
