They might play traditional Spanish-style classical guitars, but they’re not your standard guitar ensemble. Described as a “quartet with a difference” by the Irish Times, the Dublin Guitar Quartet is the first classical guitar quartet entirely devoted to new music. Since their formation, the quartet has worked to expand the genre’s limited repertoire by commissioning new works and adapting modern masterpieces. With the help of 8- and 11-string guitars, the quartet has created an original catalogue of arrangements by composers such as Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt, and György Ligeti. Expect a dynamic, entertaining, and completely novel concert experience at their San Diego debut with ArtPower.
