Founded in 2009, the Isasi Quartet blends the complexity and depth of German musical culture with the lyricism and sensuality of Southern Europe, a pairing also found in the string quartets of Andrés Isasi. The four musicians seek to imbue their interpretations with an intensely emotional, spiritual quality, in music ranging from German and Austrian composers of the Romantic and Post-Romantic eras, to French and Russian composers of the 19th century and contemporary music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The Isasi Quartet makes regular appearances in festivals and recital series in Germany, Austria, France and Spain, and they work closely together with living composers. The ensemble has already made several recordings for broadcast in Germany (BR), Austria (ORF) and Spain (RNE, Solidaria TV, CRTVG, Localia). The 3rd volume of their recordings of Andrés Isasi’s complete string quartets will be released by NAXOS in April 2015.
