Music in the Park Series concludes with the debut of Cuarteto Latinoamericano, the Latin Grammy winning ensemble string quartet from Mexico. Formed in 1982, Cuarteto Latinoamericano is known worldwide as the leading proponent of Latin American music for string quartet. The Cuarteto has recorded most of the Latin American repertoire for string quartet. The sixth volume of their Villa-Lobos 17 quartets cycle, recorded for Dorian, was nominated for a Grammy award in 2002 in the field of Best Chamber Music Recording as well as for a Latin Grammy. Their CD, “Brasileiro, works of Mignone”, on the Sono Luminus label, won a Latin Grammy for Best Classical Recording in 2012.
