Helios Guitar Quartet
The Helios Guitar Quartet takes a new look at the potential for this now well-established instrumental ensemble. Grand Prize winners at the 2010 Pacific Guitar Competition, all four members are current or former students of William Kanengiser, founding member of the Los Angeles Guitar Guitar Quartet. The Helios Guitar Quartet extends the range of the ensemble by including two unusual guitars: one, a seven string guitar allowing for extremely low bass notes, and also a soprano guitar, restrung so as to give notes in a much higher register than guitars are usually capable of. This expanded range of pitch allows the Helios Guitar Quartet to embark on their current project, a performance of Johann Sebastian Bach's monumental work "The Well-Tempered Clavier", originally for keyboard, but here arranged for Helios by quartet member Michael Kudirka.
