27 Jan Calidore String Quartet & Cristina Gómez Godoy
Hugo Romano records Calidore String Quartet and oboist Cristina Gómez Godoy live in L’Auditori de Barcelona for Catalunya Música, the Catalan classical radio station. The concert repertoire offers another of Ludwig van Beethoven’s op. 18 string quartets, No. 4 on this occasion. It was in this composition that Beethoven began to explore the emotional depth of the tonality of C minor, which he would reserve for his more dramatic works.
The Calidore String Quartet also play String Quartet in G minor by Edvard Grieg, a light work with a melodic spirit. And the oboe quartets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Benjamin Britten, both of which will test the technical and expressive skills of the guest oboist, Cristina Gómez Godoy, who has played as principal oboist with orchestras of such renown as the Berlin Philharmonic, the Filarmonica della Scala of Milan, and the London Symphony Orchestra.
