Pacific Guitar Ensemble
"David Tanenbaum and Peppino D'Agostino have put together the most innovative guitar ensemble ever, with eight outstanding performers on classical and steel-string
guitars, electric basses, and 17th-century theorbos. They play music written by composers like Brazilian guitar legend Sergio Assad, noted minimalist Belinda Reynolds, and D'Agostino, the group's own brilliant steel-string stylist, as well as fresh arrangements of great composers from Bach to Brahms, Dowland to Rossini."

An immediate hit with its audiences, the Pacific Guitar Ensemble was founded in 2010 by classical guitarist David Tanenbaum and steel string guitarist Peppino D'Agostino: a mixed guitar ensemble able to perform a wide variety of repertoire. Made up of faculty members of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and its most exceptional alumni, the Pacific Guitar Ensemble brings together a wide array of guitars and plucked instruments: nylon strings, steel, electric basses, oud and 17th century theorbos. A mixed guitar ensemble has more variability of sound and is able to perform a wide variety of repertoire, ranging from arrangements of Bach, Brahms, Dowland and Rossini to original music by Sergio Assad, minimalist Belinda Reynolds, Terry Riley, and D'Agostino. These guitarists meet to play for and with each other, learning, copying, sharing and competing. The Pacific Guitar Ensemble released its first CD, begin, in 2012.
