$12.99 $8.99

Cuarteto Latinoamericano was formed in 1981 on the initiative of four outstanding Latin American musicians: brothers Saul Bitran, violinist; Aron Bitran, violinist; Alvaro Bitran, cellist; and Javier Montiel, violist. Since then, the ensemble has performed extensively in Mexico, Eastern and Western Europe, Scandinavia, South America and the United States. The quartet has special interest in the works by Latin America composer of all periods, and has premiered many string quartets written specifically for them. Reviews of their performances of the traditional, contemporary, and Latin American repertoires have praised the quartet’s technical command, warmth, musicality, versatility, and enthusiasm. It is this ability to render with equal success new compositions and traditional masterpieces of the string quartet repertoire that makes the Cuarteto Latinoamericano unique. The members of the quartet are Artists-in-Residence at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA.

“…an intelligently selected program of Latin American string quartets…the Cuarteto Latinoamericano is unquestionably the best-sounding quartet ensemble I have ever heard coming from this part of the world. It has a clean, tight ensemble, startling luxuriance of tone, and the delightful collective habit of playing cleaning on pitch…strongly recommended” — John Wiser –Fanfare
