Irish Guitar Quartet [Concert]


The new FUAIM Spring 2020 season continues this Friday in the Aula Maxima, when we welcome back the wonderful Irish Guitar Quartet.
Please join us for a treat of a programme that ranges from Bach and Boccherini to Atkins and Assad.

The Irish Guitar Quartet (IGQ) -
Jerry Creedon, David Keating, Fiona Falvey and Aengus Kirakowski - is one of Ireland’s most exciting music ensembles, performing a wide range of music from Baroque to Contemporary fusion. Utilising the wonderful versatility of the instrument to create textures and ambience, the IGQ have left nation-wide audiences spellbound.

The guitar is a miniature orchestra in itself’ - Ludwig van Beethoven
Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, except, possibly two’ - Frederic Chopin
 
Great minds think alike! If only Chopin had heard four guitars!
