FUAIM – The Irish Guitar Quartet
No strangers to the FUAIM Friday lunchtime concert series, the Irish Guitar Quartet is back for this week’s concert, live-streamed from the Glucksman Gallery.
Be sure to join us at the usual time of 1:10pm at https://www.youtube.com/user/musicatUCC for a wonderful programme that ranges from Argentinian tangos to new age music by David Pritchard and Leo Brouwer – all conveyed through the magic of the guitar.
‘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!
