Classical 91.5

Latin American classical music

For over 45 years, San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet has continually reimagined the string quartet experience, performing thousands of concerts worldwide, and endeavoring to open up the "world's music" for everyone. On the January 14th broadcast, we'll hear the Latin side of the Kronos Quartet.

This week we wish Feliz Cumpleanos a Beethoven to mark the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth. You’ll hear performances of his music by great Latin American artists such as pianist Ingrid Fliter, plus special features about his life and work – in English and in Spanish!  Frank Dominguez is your host.

Meet the composers, listen to the musicians, and experience the influence of the Latin American culture in classical music, all month on Fiesta!
