Founded in Mexico in 1982, they have twice won a Latin Grammy Award: in 2012 for the album Brasileiro, works of Francisco Mignone, and in 2016 for El Hilo Invisible. They currently represent a unique voice internationally, disseminating Latin American musical creations across the five continents.
In November 1992, the quartet first recorded the Concerto Grosso for Quartet and Orchestra by Julián Orbón with the Simón Bolívar Symphonic Orchestra of Venezuela, under the direction of Eduardo Mata, for the Dorian label. This piece has been performed by the Symphonic Orchestras of Dallas, Los Angeles and San Antonio, and by the National Arts Center of Ottawa. For their contribution to the cultural life of Pittsburgh and Toronto, their mayors honoured them in November and December 1991, by declaring a Cuarteto Latinoamericano Day in both cities.
Outstanding concerts have recently taken place in Milan (Teatro alla Scala), Amsterdam (Concertgebouw), Bonn, Brussels, Luxemburg, Montreal, Sao Paulo, Caracas, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, Shanghai, Miami, Boston and New York (Carnegie Hall), with the New York Times publishing: “Superb players, remarkably versatile in responding to the demands of different scores.”
