Cuarteto Latinoamericano’s latest album, Four, for Tango, (New Albion) may be cashing in on the most recent Piazzola-inspired craze infecting classical music spheres. But as a Mexican string quartet actively promoting recent works by Latin and South American composers, they have a natural flair for choreographing the musical subtleties of the tango. The quartet has been in residence in Washington for the past few months, working with students and community members to heighten awareness of Latin classical music, as part of the En Communidad project. Tonight’s concert, featuring works by Mexican composers Silvestre Revueltas and Javier Alvarez, marks the end of the Cuarteto’s sojourn in the States. At 8 p.m. at the Mexican Cultural Institute, 2829 16th St. NW. $16. (202) 833-9800. (Amy Domingues)
