Canadian Guitar Quartet reinvent classical masterpieces at upcoming Langley concert

The Canadian Guitar Quartet play the Rose Gellert Hall on Saturday, Jan. 21.

The Canadian Guitar Quartet is bringing their new spin on the classical four-string quartet to the Langley Community Music School (LCMS) during a special Rose Gellert concert on Saturday, Jan. 21.

The group will be performing an innovative mix of the classical masters, including Beethoven, Vivaldi, Saint-Säens and Rossini, as well as new Canadian compositions created for this four-guitar ensemble by guitarists Renaud Côté-Giguère and Patrick Roux.

Since their debut in 1999, the Canadian Guitar Quartet has toured extensively throughout North and South America, appearing with orchestras across Canada and recording three albums.

“This concert is destined to be an unforgettable experience,” said LCMS artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann.

“The reinvention of great classical masterpieces in a four-guitar ensemble is enough to cement critical acclaim. But their original guitar music — with works ranging from an exploration of conflicting inner emotions to a wild taxi ride through the streets of Buenos Aires — are compelling enough to engage a very wide audience. It will surely be a stunning performance.”

The show beings at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults, $22 for seniors, $16 for students and $10 for LCMS students. Call the box office at 604-534-2848 or visit langleymusic.com to purchase.

The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St.
