Gaudí String Quartet
This chamber music group rises from the connection between North and South of Spain, being its point of convergence the Ducth musical scene, where all the members of this quartet met for the first time.
The same way that Antoni Gaudí (Catalan architect who lived during the second half of the Nineteenth Century and beginning of the Twentieth Century) created his distinctive and Modernist style mixing different architectural techniques, colours and influences, Gaudí String Quartet is a mixture of diverse backgrounds like jazz, pop, historical performance, folk or Alexander technique, being classical music its starting point as well as the base of its academic training.
The common interest of the members of Gaudí and their cultural roots take them to make a special submergence into the Spanish repertoire for string quartet: Arriaga, Toldrá, Turina Bretón or Monsalvatge are some of the composers that inspired Gaudí to let the Dutch audience taste the Spanish flavour. For this particular occasion, Gaudí brings the public closer to the classical music masterpieces of different historical periods.
