Praised by The Washington Post as playing with "marvelous virtuosity," Alturas Duo is guitarist Scott Hill and Carlos Boltes on viola and charango (a small, ten-string Andean guitar). Bringing together the worlds of South American folk, western classical, and contemporary music, the duo is one of the most engaging chamber ensembles today. Alturas Duo has recorded for Brioso, Con Brio, Ravello Records, and Naxos.
Comprised of Saúl, Arón, and Álvaro Bitrán, and Javier Montiel, Cuarteto Latinoamericano has been the leading proponent of Latin American music for string quartet for almost forty years. The Cuarteto has been recognized with the Mexican Music Critics Association Award, received Chamber Music America/ASCAP’s “Most Adventurous Programming” Award three times, and has twice won the Latin Grammy for Classical music: in 2012 for Brasileiro, works of Francisco Mignone, and in 2016 for El Hilo Invisible.
