Workshop and concert 4nations - Guitar quartet

Guitar, Piano and Vocal

The guitar quartet 4nations was founded in 2010. Originally founded as a pure classical quartet they have diversified within the group. The joint work has been divided into quartet playing (4nations), guitar duo (2nations), guitar and vocals and classical guitar solo. The change of instrumentation enriches the programme. The repertoire ranges from the Renaissance through modern classic to contemporary and popular titles. The idea of adding to the existing repertoire and developing a full-length concert program was born subsequent to competition “Young Musicians”.
