Carlos Babosa-Lima (guitar), The Havana String Quartet

The Latin Grammy-winning Havana String Quartet and guitarist Carlos Barbosa- Lima perform a varied programme of music by Cuban composer Leo Brouwer (born 1939), including his Quintet for guitar and string quartet, several pieces for solo and duo guitar, and the world premiere recording of his String Quartet No 5. The disc’s title work, Beatlerianas, is a suite of seven arrangements by Brouwer of songs by Lennon and McCartney, heard here in a new version for guitar and string quartet.

Originally this work was conceived for guitar and string orchestra at the bequest of Japanese guitarist Ichiro Suzuki in 1985. The string orchestra version, titled ‘From Yesterday to Penny Lane’ was previously recorded by Carlos Barbosa-Lima in 1997, but is now out of print. Although one might think that it is difficult to expect much from tunes that are so commonly covered, Brouwer’s rendition is a work of art, as the piece is overflowing with a variety of influences, textures and techniques. The guitar and string quartet are in constant dialogue sharing harmonic combinations, colours and melodies.

The Havana String Quartet has previously released a disc of Brouwer’s first four String Quartets and String Trio on Zoho (ZM201108).
