Quaternaglia Guitar Quartet
Saturday, January 24, 8pm, Sundin Hall
Quaternaglia Guitar Quartet (QGQ) has been widely acclaimed as one of the world's top contemporary guitar ensembles. QGQ —comprised of Brazilian guitarists Chrystian Dozza, Fabio Ramazzina, Thiago Abdalla and Sidney Molina—is known both for its artistic excellence and for its significant contributions to the expansion of the guitar quartet repertoire. Over the past twenty years, the ensemble has established a broad canon of original pieces and arrangements through partnerships with composers including Leo Brouwer, Almeida Prado, Egberto Gismonti, and Paulo Bellinati. The quartet first attracted the attention of international critics when it was awarded the "Ensemble Prize" at the International Guitar Contest of Havana in 1998. Since then, the group has regularly performed in various notable guitar and chamber series in the United States and the world. Quaternaglia's discography includes the albums Quaternaglia, Antique, Forrobodó, Presença, Estampas, and Jequibau as well as the DVD Quaternaglia, recorded live. As part of the celebration of the group's twentieth anniversary, in 2012, Quaternaglia performed as soloist with Sinfônica Heliópolis conducted by Isaac Karabtchevsky.

Saturday, February 21, 8pm, Sundin Hall
In their January 1997 issue, the editors of GUITAR PLAYER magazine voted Miroslav Tadic one of the world's thirty most radical and individual guitarists. Tadic completed his formal education in the United States after studying in Italy and his native Yugoslavia. He has performed and recorded in a wide variety of settings and musical styles, ranging from music of the Baroque and Classical periods to blues, jazz, and rock. Tadic's performing and recording credits include projects with Terry Riley, the Los Angeles Opera with Placido Domingo, London Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte- Carlo, MDR Leipzig Symphony Orchestra, among others. He is frequently heard in Europe, Japan, North and South America. In recent years Tadic has concentrated on developing an approach to improvisation which combines and juxtaposes musical material drawn from many diverse sources, including Baroque, European classical and North Indian classical music, Eastern European folk traditions, blues, jazz, and rock. He is noted for his pioneering work in applying the elements of classical and flamenco techniques to the electric guitar.
