Texas Guitar Quartet
Formed in 2008, the Texas Guitar Quartet has been hailed as “Impeccable in every respect” by Classical Guitar Magazine. Throughout the US, Canada, Central America, Spain, and China, audiences have embraced the quartet for their daring programs, dazzling virtuosity and joyful music making. Recent highlights include performances for the Encuentro Internacional de Guitarra (Nicaragua), Victoria Bach Festival, Guitar Foundation of America Convention, Festival Internacional del Noreste (Mexico), and Texas Music Festival. The quartet has presented a series of concerts in historic cathedrals along the Camino de Santiago, Spain, and a whirlwind 10 city tour throughout China. In the summer of 2020, TxGQ was featured in a new Delos Label release, The Singing Guitar, for the premiere recording of a landmark new work by lauded American composer Nico Muhly, in collaboration with Grammy-winning chamber choir Conspirare. The group has also premiered new works by Joseph Williams II, Peter Lieuwen, Mark Anthony Cruz, Benoit Albert, and John Truitt. They continue to push the boundaries of the guitar quartet medium through daring arrangements of orchestral masterworks by Mozart, Beethoven, and Ravel. RED, the quartet's first album, was released to critical acclaim and was praised by Guitar International as a “tremendous accomplishment for the classical guitar...the TxGQ perform with virtuosity, clarity, balance, and a refined character which will no doubt help to establish them as one of today’s leading guitar quartets.” Their latest album, Icon, features the complete 40th Symphony by Mozart, and was released in late 2018. TXGQ has been the featured soloist with several orchestras such as the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra, Camerata Bach, Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra, and the Abilene Philharmonic.
