Chapí, Ruperto - String Quartets 1 & 2 - Cuarteto Latinoamericano



Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
The quartet's tone was subject to tremendous control and gradations, against which you could always hear the immaculate silvery threads of the first violin. Their performance was an elegant, laid-back miracle, throughly worked out, often with a wonderful sense of formality. - The Huffington Post!.The Cuarteto Latinoamericano is a string quartet with exceptional drive, control and finesse. - Cincinnati Enquirer!.Through such ensembles as the Cuarteto Latinoamericano, Latin America's composers have long since arrived on the world's stage. - Toronto Star!.The history of the string quartet genre in Spain arguably begins with the luminous and crisp quartets by Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805), a composer who was Italian by birth, but a Spaniard in heart, spirit and language. Half a century later we would witness the three landmark quartets written by that prodigious and promising young comet called Juan Crisostomo Arriaga (1806-1826). But since the tragic and untimely death of the 'Spanish Mozart', the creation of string quartets in Spain seemed to sink into a lethargy which would last until the beginnings of the 20th century.! During the year 1901, the Cuarteto Frances was formed in Madrid. This string quartet encouraged local composers to write quartets, several of which were premiered in its concerts. This initiative triggered the writing of the first Spanish Post-romantic masterpieces for quartet. Among them were the fourteen quartets by Conrado del Campo (himself a member of the Cuarteto Frances), the quartets by Tomas Breton, the string quartet ('de la guitarra') by Joaquin Turina and, of course, the four string quartets by Ruperto Chapi, by then a well established and successful composer who had never written any chamber music.! The four quartets by Chapi burst like a fresh breeze in the Spanish chamber music landscape. Here is a composer who masterfully captures the Spanish character the poise, the sincerity and above all, the simple joy of a nation that had suffered too much. Chapi brilliantly funnels the color and purely Spanish drama of the zarzuela into the almost abstract and Central European genre of the string quartet.!
