The Minneapolis Guitar Quartet presents the music of Bach, Hiromi, Radovanlija, Krouse & Prince
One of the very few guitar ensembles performing the majority of its repertoire from memory, the MGQ presents original works and commissions as well as its own brilliant arrangements of music by such composers as Ginastera, Piazzolla, Debussy, and the Finnish folk-based music of Maria Kalaniemi. New arrangements showcase music by Jazz pianist Hiromi, Prince’s Purple Rain, and The Easy Beats’ Friday on My Mind. These ventures represent the quartet’s intention to bring its audiences distinctive and imaginative experiences.
The MGQ has performed in recital throughout major U.S. cities, and at Princeton University, the National Arts Center (Mexico City), Round Top International Guitar Festival, and at the Guitar Foundation of America Festival.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
