From Los Angeles, Quarteto Nuevo merges western classical, eastern European folk, Latin and jazz with an organic feel that bridges many musical cultures. Their diverse programs can be tailored to fit anywhere, from an intimate chamber music venue to a large outdoor festival. The ensemble’s razor-sharp precision is enhanced by jazzy interludes, lightly rumbling percussion motifs and mesmerizing rhythms. They effectively meld the music of ancient worlds and faraway places with a contemporary groove that is fashioned to enchant audiences of all ages.
Quarteto Nuevo was one of thirty-one acts selected by Atlanta’s South Arts foundation to be part of their ‘Jazz Road Tour’ grants. As part of the grant award, Quarteto Nuevo will be premiering a new commission titled “Jazz Road Suite.” The three movement work will be co-composed by ensemble members Damon Zick, Kenton Youngstrom and Jacob Szekely. Each movement will draw inspiration from one of the states on this tour schedule (Utah, Colorado and Wyoming).
