The Dublin Guitar Quartet visited NPR this past fall to perform a few of their Philip Glass transcriptions. The Tiny Desk Concert is now available for streaming at NPR.org.
“Whether you know the Glass quartets or not, it’s astonishing how satisfying the music sounds on four guitars. The interlocking parts are transparent and the music seems to breathe fresh air. The group’s intonation is impeccable, the rhythms crisp and precise whether they are keeping the propulsive engine chugging or lurching to a sudden new arpeggio. Watch their heads, all bobbing in unison.” – Tom Huizenga, NPR Music
