Described as a “quartet with a difference” by the Irish Times, the Dublin Guitar Quartet (DGQ) 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.
With the help of eight and eleven-string guitars the quartet has created an original catalog of arrangements by composers such as Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Arvo Part, and Gyorgy Ligeti.
