LOS ANGELES GUITAR QUARTET
On November 19, the Grammy Award-winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet will offer a varied program of classical favorites, tracing a broad dramatic arc and emotional journey. For three decades, the LAGQ has set the standard for expression and virtuosity among guitar ensembles. Their acclaimed transcriptions of concert masterworks provide a fresh look at the music of the past while their interpretations from the contemporary realm continually break new ground.
The highlight of the program will be Road to the Sun, written for the LAGQ by guitar legend Pat Metheny. This six-movement work is a journey through the musical worlds of Metheny, including jazz, groove, ballad, rock and expressionist elements. Not to be missed!
"The world's hottest classical ensemble or its tightest pop band? However it helps you to think about the LAGQ, keep the emphasis on superlatives for its unrivaled joy, technical élan and questing spirits."
- Los Angeles Times
"Ensemble guitar playing doesn't doesnt come any better."
- The Kansas City Star
