Cuarteto Latinoamericano

"...a striking ability to hear the leading line, so that listening to Beethoven was like reading the score. The tone had tremendous control and gradations, against which you could always hear the immaculate silvery threads of the first violin. The performance was an elegant, laid-back miracle, thoroughly worked out, often with a wonderful sense of formality. "                                                                           -Huffington Post​



Cuarteto Latinoamericano is one of the world's most renowned classical music ensembles, for more than thirty years the leading proponent of Latin American music for string quartet. Founded in Mexico in 1982, the Cuarteto has toured extensively throughout Europe, North and South America, Israel, China, Japan and New Zealand. They have premiered more than a hundred works written for them and they continue to introduce new and neglected composers to the genre. Winners of the 2012 and 2016 Latin Grammys for Best Classical Recordings, they have been recognized with the Mexican Music Critics Association Award and three times received Chamber Music America/ASCAP's "Most Adventurous Programming" Award.
