A string quartet, but not as you’ve heard it before: the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet combines breathtaking artistry and an infectious joie de vivre as they explore the furthest reaches of the repertory, from Renaissance music to film scores. In this concert they keep it largely contemporary, with arrangements of film music alongside Ian Krouse’s hypnotic Folias and Albéniz’s haunting La Vega.
