Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, New Renaissance

The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet’s new album, New Renaissance, gives a modern spin to Renaissance masterworks. LAGQ embarks on a quixotic journey through Spain, Italy, England and France. Featuring original arrangements and compositions inspired by such Renaissance masters as Francesco da Milano, John Dowland and Josquin des Prez, the album also shares connections with Miguel de Cervantes and the Minister of Silly Walks himself, Sir John Cleese. With a rich discography of over fifteen recordings, the pioneering Los Angeles Guitar Quartet has firmly established themselves as the “State of the Art” in guitar ensembles. Their repertoire runs the gamut from Bach to gamelan, from reggae to rock, and from Classical warhorses to incisive modern works. This met its full realization in their GRAMMY winning “LAGQ’s Guitar Heroes”.
