Dimitris Dragatakis - The String Quartets (New Hellenic Quartet)

Irida 022 200Irida Classical presents the complete works for string quartet by composer Dimitris Dragatakis, performed by the New Hellenic Quartet.



The composer’s works for string quartet occupy a special position in his award winning catalogue as they are accepted as a whole as his most complete offering.
The New Hellenic Quartet was one of the most important ensembles to perform works by contemporary Greek composers and had a close working relationship with the composer. The lasting result of their collaboration is this recording, which gives us the chance to appreciate the full scope of Dragatikis’ string quartets – from Quartet no. 1, which was his first long form composition, to Quartet no. 7, his final work overall.
