Described as “the quartet with a difference,” (Irish Times), the Dublin Guitar Quartet is the first classical guitar quartet entirely devoted to New Music. Since its formation at the Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama, the ensemble has worked to expand the limited repertoire by commissioning new works and adapting modern masterpieces from outside of the guitar repertoire. With the help of eight and eleven-string guitars the quartet has created an original catalogue of arrangements by composers such Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Arvo Part, Gyorgy Ligeti and more.
A conversation with the artists follows.
