The VIDA Guitar Quartet brings together four guitarists of exceptional artistry and “unerring musical instinct” (Gramophone). VIDAʼs ability to “conjure up an orchestral palette of colour and effects” (Classic FM) combined with their “exquisite tonal and dynamic control” has firmly stablished them as a passionate and masterful ensemble who sparkle with “vitality and spontaneity” (Acoustic). Tonight the quartet celebrates the launch of their new CD, Bachianas, featuring music inspired by Bach.
