Notes & Reviews:

The award winning Cuarteto Quiroga - one of the boldest, most personal, and most individual protagonists of Europe's new string quartet generation - presents a musical trip in four stages, on the theme of challenge! These four works are the "statements" of three composers confronted with the challenges of their time. Haydn's Op. 20, No. 2 was one of his most interesting statements, in response to the challenge of integrating the old forms into a new style of music writing. Webern's Langsamer Satz is the statement of a young composer facing the challenge of a musical language about to collapse, while his Op. 5 represents the statement of what he later saw as the "natural" way of writing new music. And finally we come to Giovanni Sollima, who has stated a brilliantly eclectic way of approaching the challenge of composition for a generation that cannot escape the influence of popular music.
