About The Artist

Comprising two global icons of classical guitar and two searing acoustic guitar virtuosos, the European Guitar Quartet explores the depths of where “Romanticism and folklore meet groove and percussion” (Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten). The quartet makes its Ravinia debut combining the intense, spirited music of South America and Europe, from unique interpretations of pieces by Piazzolla and dances by Barrios to the highwire melodies of Paganini and rhythms of Balkan dances.
