The Brazilian Guitar Quartet embarks on another tour in the United States, a country that hosts BGQ concerts since the early years of the group. This time the appearances will concentrate mostly on the east coast, including the states of Florida, New York, Pennsylvania and Maine, besides Arizona and Iowa. The tour programs alternate between music by Heitor Villa-Lobos (from the group’s 2011 Latin Grammy winner CD) and Spanish composers such as Granados, Albéniz, de Falla and Rodrigo. During the concerts, a pre-release version of BGQ’s new CD Spanish Dances – scheduled to be officially released in April – will be available to the audiences.

Celebrating the Summer festivals in North America, the Brazilian Guitar Quartet makes in July its first tour under the auspices of Shupp Artists Management. The tour includes a returning engagement at the Colorado Music Festival, where the BGQ performed a sold-out concert in 2009, and a Canadian appearance at Ottawa’s Music & Beyond Festival. There, the quartet will perform three different programs, featuring music by Bach, Brazilian classical composers – including music by Villa-Lobos from the 2011 Latin Grammy winner CD – and the Spanish repertoire from the soon-to-be released new BGQ album.
