The Georgia Guitar Quartet is an exciting new voice in today’s chamber music scene. These four young men from the American South deliver a high-energy blend of breathtaking virtuosity and imaginative programming while taking an adventurous approach to classical music. Borrowing from the past and present, they consistently draw inspiration from the ever-evolving palette of music that has influenced them: classical masters such as Bach and Brahms, experimentalists in the vein of Cage, Bartók and Stockhausen, and contemporary rock icons like Radiohead and Led Zeppelin. Rousing Irish folk music and late Impressionistic masterpieces share the stage, while the sublime beauty of Chopin rubs shoulders with ground-breaking contemporary works. Accomplished composers themselves, the Quartet frequently incorporates their own unique works into their increasingly dynamic concert program. Their incredible range and interactive spontaneity continually leaves audiences with the memory of a thrilling new way to experience chamber music in the 21st century.Hailing from Athens, Georgia the Quartet recently marked its 10th anniversary season with two sold-out performances in New York, a performance at the Cerritos Center for the The Performing Arts in Los Angeles, and an appearance with the Utah Symphony Orchestra. The GGQ has been featured on American Public Media’s “Performance Today” and has released four critically acclaimed recordings, the most recent consisting exclusively of music composed by the Quartet.
