Get to know the ensemble

The quartet Novecento offers something more than just the traditional repertoire: It focusses on music written at the end of the impressionism era and covers the whole 20th century. Unknown or little known music, but always fun, always evocative and always original. Every work in their recitals represents a country, a culture or musical philosophy full of contrasts, ready to move and satisfy the emotions of their audience. The quartet, Novecento, wants, with this initiative, to offer a different perspective to complete the chamber music panorama of Santiago de Compostela.

In 2018, they collaborated on the recording of “Fios de ouro no ár”, a CD of Galician music by Rodrigo Romaní.
In the same year, they promoted the cycle “Female Composers” with the University of Santiago de Compostela. As a result of the commission by the Betanzos town council, they premiered the String Quartet no. 11 by the Galician composer Carlos López García-Picos.

Repertoire

Novecento Quartet

Four musicians who arrived in Santiago de Compostela from different corners of Europe. Ildikó Oltai, Irina Gruia, Ioana Ciobotaru and Millán Abeledo.

All of whom are members of the Real Filharmonía de Galicia, who decided to unite and form a permanent string quartet.

The inaugral Novecento Quartet concert took place in June of 2016 in the Paraninfo hall of the University of Santiago de Compostela, with works by Turina, Britten, Shostakovich and Bartók, and had enormous success with the audience and critics alike.
