Echoes Festival serenades London NEWS
The Quiroga Quartet is coming to London as part of Echoes Festival 2018 - a celebration of outstanding performers from the world of classical music.
The quartet, named in honour of the prolific composer and violinist Manuel Quiroga, has won international acclaim from critics and audiences alike for their distinctive personality as well as their bold and original approach to the string quartet repertoire.
The Quartets programme offers the chance to hear music by the 'Spanish Mozart', Juan Criststomo de Arriaga; Argentinas most important 20th-century composer, Alberto Ginastera; and contemporary Spanish composer Cristbal Halffter who has - among many things - been awarded Spains highest award for composition.
