The Eclectic Los Angeles Guitar Quartet in Concert Monday
The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet will perform this coming Monday evening (the 9th) in a concert featuring Spanish Renaissance music, Manuel De Falla's "El Amor Brujo," and a range of eclectic works ranging from English composer John Dowland to Chet Atkins and Dweezil Zappa. On this edition of StudioTulsa, we speak with one of this Grammy Award-winning ensemble's members, former Tulsan Matthew Greif. Greif, who studied with University of Tulsa guitar professor Michael Fowler, joined the group nearly a decade ago, and is well-versed in jazz, rock, flamenco, and bluegrass music, along with classical guitar. He formerly was a member of the Falla Trio, and his own solo recordings include "Permanent Transition." He teaches in the California State University system, but tours the world with LAGQ, an internationally acclaimed ensemble. You can hear music from their latest recording ("New Renaissance") and much more in their Lorton Performance Center concert, Monday at 7:30pm. Remarkably, the show will be free to the public.
