Notes and Editorial Reviews
Music must be made with passion, love and all your heart. (SBSQ first violinist Alejandro Carreno)
Violinists Alejandro Carreno and Boris Suarez, violist Ismel Campos and cellist Aimon Mata breathe new life into three gems of the string quartet repertoire, performed with the perfect balance of classical refinement and South American panache.
A debut recording that musically and thematically reflects the young ensembles extraordinary story and progressive pursuits.
This is DG's first recording of Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera's particularly difficult 1948 String Quartet No. 1, inspired by the vivacious dance rhythms of his homeland.
Shostakovich's deeply personal String
Quartet No. 8 is dedicated to the victims of fascism and war, a theme which particularly speaks to the SBSQ.
In another DG first, the SBSQ adds South American flavor to the American String Quartet, one of Dvorak's celebrations of his visit to the New World.
The SBSQ comprises key players of DG exclusive recording artist Gustavo Dudamel's Simón Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela.
