Radames Gnattali Quartet
The Radamés Gnattali Quartet performs works by Heitor Villa-Lobos. In 2012, the ensemble recorded all 17 string quartets written by the composer. Villa-Lobos wrote quartets throughout his life, creating a unique texture, color, and idiomatic style using the influences of folk and urban Brazilian music. This program includes some of the composer’s most beloved works and celebrates his 130th year of birth.
