Notes & Reviews:

The prize-winning Cuarteto Quiroga returns to the studio with an innovative and bold recording! The repertoire featured here describes how Arnold Schonberg, Anton Webern, and Alban Berg - departing from the musical language they inherited from the European musical tradition in which they were educated - evolved naturally to create a completely new sonic universe. The CD illustrates how these genius authors did not try to deliberately break up with their past, but to honor it and to be faithful to its heritage, nonetheless provoking an amazing revolution in musical language that still remains unparalleled today.
