Contemporary Italian Music for Guitar Quartet
The Guitalian Quartet comprises four Italian guitar soloists who have joined forces to present new Italian compositions for guitar quartet. Most of this music has been composed for the Guitalians and presents a wide-ranging view of compositional style in present day Italy.
