Dublin Guitar QuartetDublin Guitar Quartet
Described as a "quartet with a difference" by the Irish Times, the Dublin Guitar Quartet, with Brian Bolger, Pat Brunnock, David Creevy and Thomas O'Durcain, is a one-of-a-kind classical guitar ensemble that occupies a unique space in the wider chamber music world. Their concerts include a mix of new works and modern classics by internationally acclaimed composers.
Since its formation at the Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama, the Quartet has worked to expand the limited repertoire by commissioning new works and adapting modern masterpieces from outside of the guitar repertoire. They were recently awarded an Arts Council of Ireland grant for commissions, the first of which is a new work for electric guitar quartet by New York composer Michael Gordon. They have been successful in bringing new music to unlikely audiences as well, playing as guests of 'rock' groups such as The Redneck Manifesto (Dublin) and Final Fantasy (Canada).
Audiences can expect an explosive, entertaining, and completely novel concert experience for the Quartet's Club Weisiger and United States debut tour.
