Veteran radio personality Candice Agree, producer and host of The Spanish Hour, presents a broadcast of chamber music presented in September 2011 live in concert by the Havana String Quartet (Cuarteto de cuerdas La Habana) at Instituto Cervantes New York.
The works, all of which received their New York premieres on this program, include Leo Brouwer's third and fourth string quartets Yalil Guerra's first string quartet, and Igmar Alderete's 'Cuarteto de Colores'. The Havana String Quartet is known for its unique cross-cultural repertory and its mastery of diverse musical styles. It has also collaborated with guitarists Eliot Fisk and Pepe Romero, pianist Javier Perianes, and Ibrahim Ferrer of the Buena Vista Social Club, to name a few.
