Arriaga: The complete string quartets

ICMA 2015 Nomination. Codalario Prize to the Best Musical Product 2014. Original scores, a violin treatise by Arriaga’s teacher in Paris and the use of period instruments (for the first time on a recording of the Arriaga works) form the backbone of the critical apparatus for La Ritirata’s new and vital approach to these portentous works.
