Founded in 2019, Tucson Guitar Quartet is led by driven performers, and educators. Brought together by their devotion to chamber music, TGQ provides a unique experience because of their eclectic backgrounds, unconventional repertoire, and approach to Latin-American music.
Latin American Soundscapes (2020), is the quartet’s debut album. Recorded at the Haskell Recording Studio at the University of Arizona. The album emphasizes music revolving around traditional, folkloric, and contemporary Latin American themes. Featuring works by Juan Morel Campos (Puerto Rico), Julio Cesar Oliva (México), Marcelo Coronel (Argentina), Leo Brouwer (Cuba), Sergio Assad (Brazil), and Edwin Guevara (Colombia). Amongst the music recorded there are two World Premieres and performances attributed to the quartet: An American in Bahia by Brazilian composer and Grammy Winner Sergio Assad, and Costa-Tucson composed by Naxos recording artist Edwin Guevara.
