As part of our series, La Música de México, we present  The String Quartets of Julián Carrillo, a lecture and recital by Momenta Quartet and Musicologist Dr. Alejandro L. Madrid.

Known for his so-called Sonido 13, one of the earliest theorizations about microtones in the Western art music tradition, Mexican composer and music theorist Julián Carrillo (1875-1965) composed thirteen string quartets between 1903 and 1964. Notwithstanding its being a unique collection of major works for string quartet by one of Latin America’s foremost composers, this repertory has received little attention from performers and musicologists.
