"Cuatro: A Tribute to the Music of Spain," Aquarelle Guitar Quartet
Chandos Records, CD CHAN 10786 released November 2013
Contains: FOLÍAS _______ “a modern set of variations for guitar quartet on one of the oldest and most popular themes for variations in the world: La folia.” John Sunier, CLASSICAL CD REVIEWS, AUDIO FILE AUDITION, January 2, 2014 “Folias by Ian Krouse, the Professor of Theory and Composition at UCLA, makes use of one of the oldest musical themes on record, La Folia. The title means crazy or empty-headed, possibly because of its connection to a fast, energetic, seemingly mindless dance. Krouse wrote his piece for the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, who premiered it in 1992. Two years later they recorded it on An Evening in Granada for Delos. Their performance is slightly slower and more deliberate than that of the Aquarelle Quartet, and the Chandos recording has clearer, more intimate sound with the ambience of a small, intimate concert setting. You can hear that there are four guitars because they seem to be sitting in a row across the front of the stage.”

~Maria Nockin FANFARE MAGAZINE, May-June 2014. “The recording draws to a close with an original composition, the 1992 Guitar Quartet No. 4, 'Folías' by lan Krouse (b.1956). This is quite an extraordinary 16-minute piece, building in tension as the variations become progressively shorter and faster. The actual theme is most clearly stated around the middle of the work with a grand rendering of the famous folia in the style of Corelli; and while there are also references to Baroque guitarist Gaspar Sanz's version and earlier Renaissance versions, the aesthetic here is overwhelmingly modern, leaning towards minimalist repeated notes and patterns. It receives an equally extraordinary performance - confident and characterful.” ~Robert Levett INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW, January, 2014. “Krouse's Folías - the only original composition here for four guitars - successfully combines minimalist techniques with traditional Spanish flavours…Krouse's highly inventive Folías makes for a distinctive end to the programme as the players leave the 'stage' individually, à la Haydn's Farewell Symphony. Serious fun.” ~ William Yoeman GRAMOPHONE, January 14, 2014.
“…the quartet featured a remarkable range of styles in just one piece, the closing item of the concert, Folías by the contemporary composer Ian Krouse. From opening chaos there emerged the harpsichord-like trills of 17th century guitarist Gaspar Sanz, with the melody then dissolving as the musicians left the stage, as dictated by the score.”

~ Colin Davison, GLOUCESTERSHIRE ECHO, July 21, 2014
“The concert ended with a magnificent surprise: “Folías” by Ian Krouse, a piece lasting over fifteen minutes focused around the motif of the ‘folia,’ an old Portuguese dance. This composition was very elaborate, multi-dimensional but very difficult technically. The final performance of the group, as could be expected, was rewarded with great applause, of a truly immense scale.”
