Concierto with pianist Miguel Baselga and the Kontras Quartet

Tue, 03/17/2015 - 10:00pm - 11:00pm

The Kontras Quartet has established an international reputation for their exploration of lesser-known music from Russia, South Africa, Japan, and the U.S., which inspires Kontras to present the traditional quartet literature in a new and unexpected light.

Join host Frank Dominguez for Concierto, the program that features classical music by Hispanic performers and composers. 

This week Spanish pianist Miguel Baselga plays music by Albéniz, and the Kontras Quartet performs a selection by Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov from the Concierto studios.
