Joaquin Turina and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco both carry Spain within them – the former because he was born there, the latter through his Spanish ancestors, exiled long before him. The Byron Quartet with guitarist Matteo Mela bring together four of their works filled with Hispanic musical reminiscences. Just like the country that inspired them, each of these pieces stands at the crossroads of diverse influences, mingling Franck, Debussy, Schubert, Ravel, Andalusian music, flamenco… and of course the guitar, whose spirit runs through the whole program.
