«EXQUISITE, PRECISE, PERFECTLY BALANCED. INTERPRETATIVELY FRESH PERFORMANCES COUCHED IN CONSISTENTLY WARM HUES»

—THE NEW YORK TIMES

Cuarteto Quiroga, appointed quartet-in-residence in charge of the Royal Collection of decorated Stradivarii at Madrid’s Royal Palace, has established itself as one of the most dynamic and unique quartets of its generation, winning international acclaim from critics and audiences alike for its distinctive personality as well as its bold and original approach to the string quartet repertoire.

The quartet honours the memory of Galician violinist Manuel Quiroga, one of the most outstanding instrumentalists of Spanish music history.

Prizewinners of several major international competitions (Bordeaux, Paolo Borciani, Genève, Beijing, Fnapec-Paris, Palau-Barcelona), the ensemble appears regularly worldwide (Wigmore Hall London, Philarmonie Berlin, Frick Collection and Lincoln Center New York, DaCamera Los Angeles, National Gallery Washington DC, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Invalides Paris, Martinu Hall Prague, Nybrokajen Stockholm, Auditorio Nacional-Madrid, Heidelberger Frühling, Stadtcasino Basel, Mozarteum Salzburg, String Quartet Biennial Amsterdam, etc.) and was awarded the Spanish National Radio Culture Prize.

 

Frequent stage partners include Martha Argerich, Veronika Hagen, Valentin Erben, Javier Perianes,  Richard Lester, Alain Meunier, David Kadouch, Jonathan Brown, Vladimir Mendelssohn, Tomas Djupsjöbacka, Chen Halevy, Cappella Amsterdam, and the Doric, Meta4, Ardeo and Galatea string quartets.
