Join the Belinfante quartet on a musical world trip that stimulates the imagination and connects hearts! Parallel 40 takes you along the 40th parallel of latitude, from enchanting Menorca to far-flung places around the world. Let yourself be carried away by the rich cultures, traditions and emotions, woven into the possibilities of the string quartet. 

From Armenian folk melodies to the compositions of famous masters to fado, the Belinfante quartet sublimely tells stories that cross borders and unite hearts.
