String Quartet No. 2 “Cuatro” on Orlando Jacinto Garcia’s (CRF 2013) album String Quartets 1-3, released in February 2021, has been nominated for a 2021 Latin GRAMMY in the category of Best Classical Contemporary Composition.
“The music of the Cuban-American composer Orlando Jacinto Garcia inhabits a sonic universe of its very own, one where the musical landscape is constructed in order to evoke a thorough suspension of time. The three works on the present release correspond almost precisely to the past three decades of Garcia’s career and thus present for the interpreter and listener alike a kind of survey of his development. Garcia’s mentor and teacher was Morton Feldman and the aesthetic of Feldman and his inspiration are preoccupations which color several of Garcia’s compositions.”
