DUBLIN GUITAR QUARTET
TUBULAR BELLS – Mike Oldfield
plus additional music by
Steve Reich, The Redneck Manifesto, Bryce Dessner (The National) & Rachel Grimes
_ Main Venue _
The Dublin Guitar Quartet made their debut performance supporting The Redneck Manifesto in Whelan’s in 2001.
Since then they’ve become a leading ensemble in the contemporary classical music world, touring the globe and working directly with composing legends such as Philip Glass, Arvo Pärt and Nico Muhly. On releasing a recording by the DGQ on his own label, Philip Glass recognised the unique nature of the group and noted that the DGQ has “carved a place for itself in the world of classical music.” On July 5th in Whelan’s they will continue to do this when they turn their well-honed ensemble and transcriptions skills to their first performance of Mike Oldfield’s seminal Tubular Bells album.
The DGQ are fond of a looped riff and will also perform the mesmerising instrumental work Electric Counterpoint by Steve Reich alongside music by The Redneck Manifesto, Rachel Grimes and Bryce Dessner (The National)
Electric Counterpoint – Steve Reich
Aheym – Bryce Dessner
Soundscapes over Landscapes – The Redneck Manifesto
Hibernation Statement – The Redneck Manifesto
Book of Leaves (excerpts) – Rachel Grimes
