While you're here, explore our exhibitions with one of our fun Family Guides (ask for one at the front desk) and stay for lunch at CAM Café!

Quarternaglia Guitar Quartet

Pro Musica Concert Series—now in its tenth season--celebrating the works of living composers, expands to three concerts this season to present a special treat: the Brazilian guitar quartet, Quaternaglia (http://quaternaglia.com.br). Based in São Paulo, Brazil, Quaternaglia Guitar Quartet (QGQ) is acclaimed as one of the world’s top guitar ensembles, comprised of Brazilian guitarists Chrystian Dozza, Fabio Ramazzina, Thiago Abdalla, and Sidney Molina. QGQ is recognized for its artistic excellence and for its significant contributions to the expansion of guitar quartet repertoire. Over the past twenty-¬‐five years, the group has established a wide canon of original pieces and ambitious arrangements through collaboration with composers that include Leo Brouwer, Almeida Prado, Egberto Gismonti, Sergio Molina, and Paulo Bellinati. The musicians of Quaternaglia Guitar Quartet use four custom-¬made guitars by renowned Brazilian guitar maker Sergio Abreu.

“Quaternaglia is a state-of-art-¬ensemble; they are melodically and rhythmically vital, virtuosic and exciting, individually beautiful in sound, and capable of enchanting sonorities. The performances are preternaturally exact in their synchronization while still sounding spontaneous” -- Soundboard, USA.

Co-sponsored by UNCW’s Department of Music.
