Jorge Martinez-Rios http://krwg.org en La Catrina Quartet: From Haydn to the Day of the Dead http://krwg.org/post/la-catrina-quartet-haydn-day-dead <p>Violinist Daniel Vega-Albela and violist Jorge Martinez-Rios named their string quartet “La Catrina” to give it an immediate Mexican association, and to draw on the iconic skeletal image’s message that life is fleeting. In this conversation with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin, they talk about the quartet’s name and its association with the upcoming “Dia de los Muertos” holiday, and the music that they love to play, from Haydn to Mendelssohn to signature pieces by Mexican composers such as Emmanuel Arias y Luna, Eduardo Gamboa and Manuel Ponce.</p><p></p> Tue, 29 Oct 2013 21:19:39 +0000 Leora Zeitlin 52793 at http://krwg.org La Catrina Quartet: From Haydn to the Day of the Dead For the Love of Music: Jorge Martinez-Rios and Marianna Gabbi http://krwg.org/post/love-music-jorge-martinez-rios-and-marianna-gabbi <p></p> Tue, 19 Mar 2013 18:35:15 +0000 Leora Zeitlin 37299 at http://krwg.org For the Love of Music: Jorge Martinez-Rios and Marianna Gabbi
