Dubbed a “quartet with a difference” by the Irish Times, the trailblazing Dublin Guitar Quartet is devoted exclusively to contemporary music. The group has singlehandedly transported the classical guitar canon well into the future with inventive and approachable arrangements of modern masterpieces by Steve Reich, Philip Glass, and Arvo Pärt. Hear works by Glass, Reich, Brouwer, Pärt, and Ligeti as you’ve never heard them before.
