With a cultural legacy as vibrant as its landscape is verdant, Ireland can boast centuries of remarkable contributions to the range of human creative expression. In a decidedly incomplete list, such Irish voices as James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, Samuel Beckett, Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde, Seamus Heaney, Van Morrison, Bono and U2, and Sinéad O’Connor all charted new artistic territory. Entering this strong and independent group is the Dublin Guitar Quartet. A guitar quartet is at once a classical configuration, but one with a smaller body of historical repertoire when compared to the iconic string quartet format. Nonetheless, the DGQ has seized upon this seeming liability and turned it into artistic opportunity. Since its 2002 formation at the Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama, the ensemble has commissioned new work, adapted contemporary pieces not originally written for guitar, and broadened both its range and tuning capabilities through the use of eight- and 11-string guitars, as well as specialized amplification. Their catalogue now includes work by Steve Reich, Gyorgi Ligeti, Philip Glass (with a soon-to-be-released recording of his recast string quartets) and Arvo Pärt (who collaborated on the quartet’s arrangement of his Summa, originally written for chorus). With full-bodied power and grace, the Dublin Guitar Quartet is firmly charting its place on the map of Irish voices on the global artistic stage.
