Cuarteto Quiroga has established itself as one of the most dynamic and unique quartets of its generation, winning international acclaim from critics and audiences alike for its distinctive personality as well as its bold and original approach to the string quartet repertoire. The quartet honours the memory of galician violinist Manuel Quiroga, one of the most outstanding instrumentalist of spanish music history.
Prizewinners of several major international competitions (Bordeaux, Paolo Borciani, Genève, Beijing, Fnapec-Paris, Palau-Barcelona), the ensemble appears worldwide on emblematic stages (Wigmore Hall, Musikfestival Heidelberger Frühling, Laeiszhalle Hamburg, Konzerthaus Berlin, Liederhalle Stuttgart, Muziekgebouw und Concertgebouw Amsterdam, De Doelen Rotterdam and Auditorio Nacional Madrid).
Frequent stage partners include Martha Argerich, Veronika Hagen, Valentin Erben, Javier Perianes,  Jörg Widmann and Jonathan Brown.
Their CD-albums »(R)evolutions« and »Statements« have been acclaimed by the trade press and the international audience. In 2015 they released »Frei Aber Einsam«, dedicated to Brahms (Cobra) and the piano quintets of Granados and Turina (Harmonia Mundi) in collaboration with pianist Javier Perianes. The latest albums are »TERRA«, dedicated to works of Bartók, Ginastera & Halffter, and »HERITAGE« with music of the Spanish Court in the XVIII Century.
Cuarteto Quiroga has its official residence throughout the year at Madrid’s Cerralbo Museum.
