About the album

After their succesful CD “Statements”, described by the in- ternational press as “Target in full, (...) sensational debut re- cording” (Scherzo), “sophisticated, meticulous (...) aesthetic manifesto (...) one could not wish for anything more” (Volks- krant), “a recording adventure to be acclaimed” (El Cultural), “string quartet playing of a rarely unheard beauty” (Klassieke Zaken), and awarded as Best Classical Music Album 2012 by the Spanish Independent Recording Union, the prize-winning Cuarteto Quiroga returns to the studio with another innovative and bold recording.

The repertoire selected describes musically how Arnold Schönberg, Anton Webern and Alban Berg, departing from the musical language they inherited from the european musical tradition in which they were educated, evolved naturally and progressively to unfold a completely new sonic universe.

This CD tries to illustrate how these genius authors did not have as their aesthetic target to deliberately break up with their past, but to honour it and to be faithful to its heritage.
