MADISON, FL – North Florida Community College presents the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet on Saturday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. at Van H. Priest Auditorium. The performance is part of the 2014-2015 NFCC Artist Series season.
With its superior imagination, artistry, and musical mastery, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet has made its case as “one of the major guitar ensembles in the world” (Soundboard Magazine) since its formation in 1986. As one of the very few guitar ensembles performing the majority of its repertoire from memory, the foursome—Joseph Hagedorn, Maja Radovanlija, Benjamin Kunkel and Wade Oden—moves with ease through original works for guitar quartet to its own brilliant arrangements, and from major commissions to unexpected collaborations.
The equally high skill level among the four musical partners results in performances with unbroken, interwoven clarity of lines, distinct voicing, and laser-like purity. “More than a guitar quartet, more than superb musicians, and more than a great chamber group,” says composer/performer Daniel Bernard Roumain. “They are ambassadors of sound, style, and substance.”
