KAIA String Quartet is dedicated to presenting the rich tradition of music from Latin America. Venezuelan composer Teresa Carreño’s String Quartet in B minor (1896) is described as one of her most sophisticated works in spite of certain restrictions she faced as a 19th century female composer. Claudio Santoro was among the major influential figures in 20th century Brazilian music, praised by his renowned contemporaries Igor Stravinsky and Aaron Copland. He composed the String Quartet No. 3 during his “Nationalistic Period” after 1953 and, although rarely performed, it is one of 500 compositions he wrote throughout his lifetime.
