Italian Guitar Quartet Music
Nicotra: Absinthium (8:06)
Schiavone: Quartetto No 5 (7:40)
The Guitalian Quartet comprises four Italian soloists who have joined forces to present new Italian compositions for guitar quartet. Most of this music has been composed for the ensemble and presents a wide-ranging view of styles in present-day Italy. A unifying theme through all the works is the use of the medium of guitar quartet as a vehicle for virtuoso display. The members are Guido Fichtner, Claudio Marcotulli, Maurizio Norrito and Stefano Palamidessi.
