Interview with WRTI's Jill Pasternak

Tailor-made you may be asking?  Well, according to Strad Magazine, the Quartetto di Cremona is "...as sleek and elegant as an Armani suit." And it's true. Every performer should have a tailor like that! Artists-in-residence in Milan and at the Academy Santa Cecilia in Rome, the Quartetto di Cremona (Cristiano Gualco, violin; Paolo Andreoli, violin; Simone Gramaglia, viola; and Giovanni Scaglione, cello) enjoys an international reputation for artistic and thoughtful interpretations of repertoire from classical to contemporary.

WRTI - Philadelphia Jill Pasternak speaks with the Quartet's violist, Simone Gramaglia, about their latest CD on the Audite label, Beethoven String Quartets: Volume 2, and we'll listen to their performance of the E minor String Quartet Opus 59, No. 2 - also known as theRazumovsky No. 2.
