About Time

£12.00

In 2013/14 the Tetra Guitar Quartet celebrates its 25th anniversary. To mark this landmark in the ensemble’s history they are releasing a new CD, commissioning several new pieces, and offering a range of anniversary programmes.

About Time is a new disc of premiere recordings, including two new Guitar Quartet works commissioned by Tetra from Roland Dyens (Comme un rond d'eau) and Tim Garland (Canterbury Bells).  Also included is Stephen Goss's arrangement of 'Mahler Lieder' and 'Four pieces from the First Book of Consort Lessons' by Thomas Morley – the very first work performed by the group at their debut concert in 1988.

The quartet has given over 500 concerts throughout the world and recorded seven studio CDs since its London debut 1988. Recital programmes in 2013/14 will include some old favourites, such as the Threepenny Opera Suite and the Carmen Fantasy, as well as some new arrangements of Mahler and Gershwin and specially commissioned pieces by Tim Garland and Roland Dyens.
