Founded in 1987, this quartet soon established an international reputation, winning 1st Prize in 1991 at the International Guitar Quartet Competition held in Völkingen, Germany. Their range of repertoire is wide and includes works from the Renaissance up to the present day.

They have commissioned new works from composers such as Félix Ibarrondo and Franz Constant whilst their transcriptions have been praised by several influential composers, including Rodrigo and Farkas. Much of the quartet’s success has been due to the way in which they interact with the public at their concerts, which have included numerous tours abroad, including England.

This recording is dedicated to the Spanish film maker Carlos Saura.

Guitar Quartet of Versailles:
