This event has been postponed.

20/21 Hop Presents

A string performance celebrating the beauty and diversity of Latin American music.

Founded in Mexico, this world-renowned classical music ensemble centers composers from countries south of the Rio Bravo, including beloved scores by Villa-Lobos, Revueltas, Ginastera and Piazzolla. With a focus on repertoire of exceptional rhythm and quality, Cuarteto Latinoamericano celebrates Latin American music that is as varied as its culture, geography and history, including a new Hop commissioned work by composer Miguel del Aguila.

About Cuarteto Latinoamericano

Comprised of Saul, Aron and Alvaro Bitran, and Javier Montiel, Cuarteto Latinoamericano has been the leading proponent of Latin American music for string quartet for almost forty years. Founded in 1982, the Cuarteto has toured extensively throughout Europe, North and South America, Israel, China, Japan and New Zealand. They have premiered more than a hundred works and continue to introduce new and neglected composers to the genre. Winners of the 2012 and 2016 Latin Grammys for Best Classical Recordings, they have been recognized with the Mexican Music Critics Association Award and three times received Chamber Music America/ASCAP's "Most Adventurous Programming" Award. They collaborated with world-class artists such as Janos Starker, Eduardo Mata, Rudolf Buchbinder, Manuel Barrueco and Itamar Golan. The group is active with teaching and mentorship activities at multiple music schools, universities and conservatories as well as numerous international festivals.
