“Some time ago a recorder quartet which survived in Brazil as a chamber group with steady engagements of playing, tuning, sonority, was unthinkable. Today it is a great victory for all who are involved in this practice, that we have here a group of talented and dedicated youngsters who make up the only active quartet in this musical scene currently in our country.”

NEW ALBUM “THE ART OF FUGUE”
The Quinta Essentia quartet is the main Brazilian recorder ensemble, and one of the most important chamber music groups of the present time. Its unusual formation of four musicians but only one instrument inspires new works, encourages new audiences and promotes Brazilian culture and chamber music in different countries.
“A curious ensemble that presents the sound of the recorder in a different approach” (Paraná Online, 2009)
