Salvador Bacarisse: String Quartet no. 2 Op. 12

Cuarteto Bacarisse

Salvador Bacarisse: Cuarteto nº 2 Op. 14 (First performance in modern times)

This video features the first modern-day performance of Salvador Bacarisse’s Cuarteto nº 2 Op. 12 (String Quartet No. 2 Op. 12), together with an excerpt from a lecture delivered by his son, Salvador Bacarisse Cuadrado, in 1990. Composed in 1932, while he still resided in Spain, it is divided into three movements: the first is a free interpretation of sonata form, the second contains dodecaphonic elements and marked rhythmic ostinati, while the third has a fresher and more ironic character.
