Dublin Guitar Quartet - Philip Glass
Friday, 13 September 2013 from 19:30 to 22:30 (IST)
Dublin Guitar Quartet
The opening night of their 9 day tour of Ireland is taking place in the magnificent Robert Adam Ballroom at Headfort House, Kells, Co. Meath.
The Dublin Guitar Quartet (http://www.dublinguitarquartet.com) are releasing a recording of Philip Glass’ string quartets on the composers own record label, Orange Mountain Music (http://www.orangemountainmusic.com/). This is a significant concert for the quartet and is a culmination of years of work in developing and refining their arrangements of Glass’ string quartets.
Described as a "quartet with a difference" by the Irish Times, the Dublin Guitar Quartet is a one-of-a-kind classical guitar ensemble that occupies a unique space in the wider chamber music world. It is the first classical guitar quartet devoted to new music. Since its formation at the Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama, DGQ has worked to expand the limited repertoire by commissioning new works and adapting modern masterpieces from outside of the guitar repertoire. Audiences can expect an explosive, entertaining, and completely novel concert experience.
