The Dublin Guitar Quartet Performs Philip Glass

2014

"Orange Mountain Music Presents the long-awaited new album by the Dublin Guitar Quartet performing the string quartets by Philip Glass on classical Guitars. The quartet performed in Ireland with Glass in 2008 and later uploaded a YouTube video performing Glass' Third String Quartet. The video was seen by Orange Mountain Music which immediately resolved to collaborate with the group. The new album is the fruit of that collaboration. The recording presents Glass quartets Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5, in arragnements by the members of the group themselves. The transcriptions are thoughtful adaptations that show unusual insight and understanding of the music." - philipglass.com

"A wonderful ensemble. The Dublin Guitar Quartet has carved a place for itself in the world of classical music. I am delighted that my music is part of their repertoire." 

 

- Philip Glass 

It's astonishing how statisfying the music is on four guitars.

- NPR

An extraordinary achievement.

It's quite wonderous.
