Item Number: NX.AR-002
Four Aces Guitar Quartet combines classical masterpieces and arrangements of traditional folk and pop music. If previous album Odyssee was the story of a five-year journey as an ensemble, then For Aces not only continues that journey, but it chooses a new adventurous path with compositions especially written for this cd. The composers with whom the quartet collaborated are Clarice Assad, Adam Clarke, Nuccio D'Angelo, Nejc Kuhar, Patrick Roux, Harry Sacksioni, Alain Selhorst, and Johannes Moller. The Four Aces Guitar Quartet was formed in 2008 when four Belgian classical guitar players met at the international Guitar-Symposium in Iserlohn. Their first concert was part of a graduation project where they overwhelmed the audience as well as the jury with a boldly chosen program, great virtuosity and a richness of color and musicality. Over the years the quartet has played concerts in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany and China, and in 2011 they were the first guitar ensemble ever to play the semifinals of the International Chamber Music Competition in Illzach, France.
