Reviews for San Francisco Guitar Quartet:
"Without a doubt the SFGQ's performance was an outstanding highlight of our festival. Your impeccable technique, warm sound, and stage presence spilled over to the audience and set the tone for the rest of the festival." --Reed Gilchrist, Director, Guitarra California Festival
"An impressive showcase for the individual and collective skills of the performers..." "Impressive command of the idiomatic language . . . ." "(A) superbly recorded disc well worth owning." --Classical Guitar Magazine on "Silhouette"
"The performance presents some new music worth knowing, all quite well played. Lovers of guitar ensemble music should investigate this." --The American Record Guide on "Silhouette"
"The SFGQ play with a fresh enthusiasm and life force which one rarely experiences in even the most seasoned performers. Their performance of Dusan Bogdanovic's 'Introduction and Dance' is like a gypsy caravan springing to life." --Scott Tennant, guitarist and member of the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet
"Congratulations on such a superb CD! Opals is wonderfully played! It is beautiful!" --Phillip Houghton, composer
"Among the better of the new groups must be counted the San Francisco Guitar Quartet." "Opals...demonstrated the group's ability to interact and display a broad range of tonal colors." "Cuban Landscape with Rain...was beautifully played." "An interesting and varied program showed these four personable performers equal to the challenge." --Peter Danner, San Francisco Classical Voice
"Here is a nice release from a very capable, technically and musically, group of players who give strong performances throughout in this particularly interesting programme." --Classical Guitar Magazine on "Compadres"
"The San Francisco Guitar Quartet is a group of passionate talented musicians who have put together a repertoire of music that not only just pleases, but actually engages the listener on a deeper level. When I heard their thrilling performances of Bogdanovic, Houghton, and Assad, I really felt that this group had found a path to expressing their most powerful musical impulses." --Marc Teicholz, GFA First prize winner
"In the San Francisco Guitar Quartet's (2006) release entitled 'Silhouette'...The SFGQ performs the various works beautifully, making full use of their broad dynamic range and remarkable accuracy... This disc helps to meet this demand by bringing to the forefront several brilliant new compositions." --Minor 7th Acoustic Guitar Review
