Jesús Guridi - Complete String Quartets (Nos 1 and 2) - Bretón String Quartet - Naxos Spanish Classics 2013

Here is yet another unopened/unheard selection, and with this release I have high hopes as Guridi is a very fine composer indeed who writes colorful and exciting (oft folk-inspired) orchestral scores in particular. I am entirely unfamiliar with his chamber music.

These quartets I shall check out after work-perhaps someone else can fill me in with their own comments/review :-)

Enjoy all

Thanks for this post, I like his Sinfonia Pirenaica and I'm curious to discover his quartets

Thank you for posting this. I didn't know the composer until now, and I really appreciate his music.

Hallo Willy, you are quite welcome. Sinfonia Pirenaica is one of the only Guridi pieces I don't own.
Not sure I ever heard it even, but many people have said good things about it.
