Notes & Reviews:

The guitar quartet is a type of chamber music group that emerged in the 20th century and has grown steadily in popularity. At first, such ensembles performed only arrangements of other music, but gradually composers began discovering the rich variety of nuances afforded by a group of four identical instruments. The Cuarteto de Guitarras de la Ciudad de Mexico (Mexico City Guitar Quartet) unites four young virtuoso performers of the instrument who have put their talents to the service of chamber music and have developed complicity amongst them where listening is as important as playing. They go beyond a mere musical discipline and order through the exploration of subtleties of color, dynamics, perspective, and participation. These ingredients are present in each measure of this recording.
