The early 20th century Spanish violinist Manuel Quiroga is not as well known as his compatriots Pablo de Sarasate and Pablo Casals, but he is an esteemed figure in Spain. The Cuarteto Quiroga, a youthful ensemble founded in Madrid in 2004, is keeping his name alive and creating curiosity about him among listeners outside Spain. As the quartet-in-residence in charge of the Royal Collection of decorated Stradivarius at Madrid’s Royal Palace, Cuarteto Quiroga has established itself as one of the most dynamic and unique quartets of its generation. Prizewinners of several major international string quartet competitions (Bordeaux, Paolo Borciani, Geneva, Fnapec-Paris, Palau Barcelona), the ensemble regularly appears at prestigious halls and festivals in Europe and South America. Since 2011, the quartet has been ensemble-in-residence at the Miguel Delibes Auditorium in Valladolid (Spain). Cuarteto Quiroga has won international acclaim from critics and audiences alike for its distinctive personality as well as its bold and original approach to the string quartet repertoire.
