About This Performance

For three decades, the Grammy Award-winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet (LAGQ) has set the standard for expression and virtuosity among guitar ensembles. The members’ acclaimed transcriptions of concert masterworks provide a fresh look at the music of the past while their interpretations from the contemporary realm continually break new ground. For its PCMS debut, the LAGQ offers a varied program of classical favorites, world music-inspired excursions, and Pat Metheny’s Road to the Sun. Written for LAGQ in 2016 by the legendary jazz musician, this monumental work is an inspiring fusion of classical structure and jazz grooves, tracing a broad dramatic arc and emotional journey.

Program to include music from the time of Cervantes, works by Bach, Houghton, and Metheny, and a selection of Brazilian pieces
