Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Quartetto di Cremona is releasing ‘Italian Postcards’, a new recording of quartets inspired by Italy from non-Italian composers.

In this video, the quartet’s violist Simone Gramaglia speaks to Nimrod Borenstein - the only living composer on the recording - about the latter’s work, in particular his new method of illustrated notation that ‘maps out’ various themes and interplays between instruments. Gramaglia also gives demonstrations on his viola to illustrate musical points.

’Italian Postcards’ is out on 20th November 2020. To visit the album page, which is open for pre-sales now, click here.
