The Four Aces Guitar Quartet

Saturday, March 17, 2018, 8:00 pm— Sundin Hall

The Four Aces

Eight years after the debut of the Four Aces Guitar Quartet, these four well-dressed hot shots have outgrown their Flemish roots. Their second CD, Odyssee was a big success at home and in China and their newest album, For Aces, includes compositions written especially for them.

The quartet was born in the summer of 2008 during the International Guitar Symposium in Iserlohn, where the members first met. Their first concert was part of a final project at the conservatory of Antwerp. The audience and the jury were immediately impressed with the virtuosity and musical colors the four presented.

The Four Aces Guitar Quartet has played concerts in major halls in Belgium. Abroad they performed in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Slovenia, Italy, Georgia and China. The quartet also appeared in live broadcasting shows on the Dutch station Radio 4, on the Belgian TV channel Canvas and on Belgian classical radio Klara.

In 2013 the Four Aces Guitar Quartet returned to Iserlohn to give master classes during the Guitar Symposium. That same year they won Supernova, a Belgian chamber music competition that is supported by the national radio and TV channel, as well as the Flemish government and cultural partners. As a quartet Bart, Inti, Menno and Stein continue looking for perfection by taking master classes with some of the most famous guitarists in the world.

Four Aces Guitar Quartet enjoys concerts that combine classical music with traditional folk and pop music. The composers with whom the quartet collaborated include Clarice Assad, Adam Clarke, Nuccio D'Angelo, Nejc Kuhar, Patrick Roux, Harry Sacksioni, Alain Selhorst and Johannes Möller.
