Alberti String Quartet 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 Rafael Alberti (Spanish poet who lived during the Twentieth Century) created his distinctive literary style mixing the experience of migration during his exile with the Populism and Tradition, covered by different kinds of pictorial influences of the Surrealism, Alberti 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 Alberti 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 Alberti to let the Dutch audience taste the Spanish flavour. (For this particular occasion, Alberti brings the public closer to the classical music masterpieces of different historical periods.)
