Dublin Guitar Quartet
October 18, 2013
Broaden your musical horizons with the explosive, entertaining, and always original Dublin Guitar Quartet (DGQ), a one-of-a-kind classical guitar ensemble that occupies a unique space in the chamber music world--it is the first classical guitar quartet devoted to new music. Ireland’s leading guitar ensemble, the quartet performs a contemporary mix of new Irish music and celebrated guitar works and modern classics by internationally acclaimed composers like Philip Glass, Henryk Gorecki, and Steve Reich. With the help of eight and eleven-string guitars, DGQ also expands the limited repertoire by commissioning new works and adapting modern masterpieces from outside the guitar repertoire.
