Los Angeles Guitar Quartet

“One of the finest guitar quartets in the world… If you haven’t heard a classical quitar quartet before, this one won’t just show you what you’ve been missing – they’ll blow you away!”-Guitar Player

The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet has long been hailed by music lovers as a great idea successfully realized: combine four guitarists, each an outstanding soloist and composer/arranger – Bill Kanengiser, Scott Tennant, Andrew York and John Dearman – and you have a critically-acclaimed quartet. Delos has chosen just a few of LAGQ’s “best” for this release. The CD exhibits the fantastic breadth and versatility of the foursome: from classical to jazz, world music to original compositions, the LAGQ has mastered them all. The inside booklet provides information on other LAGQ recordings so that the new fan can further explore the artistry of the LAGQ.
