Venue

Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Cuarteto Latinoamericano has been on a mission to present great works of the chamber repertoire since its founding 40 years ago. Winner of two Latin Grammys for Best Classical Recording, the quartet represents an innovative voice in classical music devoted to adventurous programming, commissioning new works and championing the voices of contemporary composers. In this unique concert, the group explores connections in Mexican visual art, history and culture through the music of five iconic composers, alongside a narrated multimedia presentation of paintings ranging from Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera to today.

Members of this ensemble play with a rapport that verges on telepathic.
