Cuarteto Ornati. As chamber music lovers as we are, the String Quartet is the best formation to express ourselves and to share music. We delve into the works of the great music masters of history, but our repertoire includes incursions into contemporary music as well, where we have had the good fortune to release numerous works that will surely be great classics in the future.
We have studied in various places with renowned teachers and we have had the opportunity to perform in all kinds of concert halls. Our story is simple, four orchestra members who meet there in 2003 to make music and since then we continue to share good moments both on stage and in the rehearsal room. Over time it has simply made it easier to understand chamber music and increase the desire to share our music with as many people as possible. And we not only refer to the public, but to the numerous collaborations of musicians and friends that enrich our quartet, in classic style and not so classic; such as mezzo Nancy Fabiola Herrera, Michael Gieler (viola), Klaidi Sahatci (violin), José Luis Castillo (piano) or the bandoneonists Santiago Cimadevilla and Rodolfo Mederos. This is how the recording of the Quintets with two violas by José Palomino was born with the violist José Alvarado, Spanish classicism, for the Hispano Musical Heritage of the SEdeM, Spanish Society of Musicology.
We are members of the Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra and we love to teach, which we do in the OFGC Academy of both our instruments and chamber music. And also, regular collaborators in the International Bach Festival, of which our violist, Adriana Ilieva is a founding member.
