Quaternaglia

The Quaternaglia Guitar Quartet

Capital University, Huntington Recital Hall

8:00 pm, Saturday, 29 February 2020

Spanning more than a quarter century, Brazil’s Quaternaglia Guitar Quartet (QGQ)—Sidney Molina, Fabio Ramazzina, Chrystian Dozza, and Thiago Abdalla—is acclaimed as one of the top ensembles of its kind and is recognized for its artistic excellence and its significant contributions to the expansion of the repertoire. The QGQ has established a wide canon of ambitious arrangements and original works through collaborations with currently prominent composers. Their nine CDs are perhaps best described as “fantastic,” as their return to our stage will be on 29 February 2020.

David Jacques, Baroque guitar

Capital University, Huntington Recital Hall

8:00 pm, Saturday, 4 April 2020

 

Both as soloist and as a guest of numerous orchestras and early-music ensembles, David Jacques has appeared in more than 3,500 performances in 35 countries and on more than 50 recordings. Amazing! Notably, three of his CDs have won the Conseil Québécois de la Musique’s Prix Opus. He also has one of the most impressive historic-guitar collections of which I’m aware. David will close our season on 4 April 2020 with a program of Baroque music delivered using an original guitar by A. Voboam built in the 1660s! Wow.
