The European Guitar Quartet

Invoking Prokofiev, Frank Zappa, and Jimi Hendrix, the European Guitar Quartet captures the spirit of motion in a raucous program of crossover tunes.

Twenty-four nylon strings tackle transcriptions of Piazzolla’s shadowy Concierto para quinteto and selections from bouncy tango suite Estaciones Porteñas; a suite of songs by Kurt Weill, written with epic theater-maker Bertolt Brecht; and choice favorites from the rock and reggae idioms. Transcending the boundaries of performance, the quartet will also render several spirited and often percussive works by its own members Reentko Dirks, Pavel Steidl, and Thomas Fellow.

  • Reentko Dirks, Danza non Danza
  • Prokofiev, Visions Fugitives
  • Weill, Alabama Song Suite
  • Hendrix, Purple Haze
  • Reentko Dirks, Like A Phoenix
  • Piazzolla, Invierno Porteño, from Estaciones Porteñas
  • Piazzolla, Verano Porteño, from Estaciones Porteñas
  • Pavel Steidl, Are You Going to Ithaca, too?
  • Thomas Fellow, Agrippina
  • Thomas Fellow, Medusa
  • Piazzolla, Concierto para quinteto
  • Zappa, Oh No / Father O’Blivion
  • Harry Belafonte, Turn The World Around
