    26:53APRIL 23, 2014

    Modal harmonies, whole-tone scales and a very free use of sonata form are the three most characteristic elements of Debussy’s String Quartet in G minor, Op. 10.

One of the most outstanding of them was Toldrà, perhaps the first to perform it on Spanish stages with his Cuarteto Renacimiento.
