Uarekena / Quatuor Fandango
Catalog: ACD2 2707
The Fandango Guitar Quartet’s debut album Uarekena focuses on an eclectic arrangement of modern guitar quartet pieces, from the pulsating cadences of Argentinian tango reflected in the music of Patrick Roux, to the haunting Brazilian melodies of Sergio Assad. Uarekena explores the Arabic influences of Dusan Bogdanovic and lively African rhythms of Jurg Kindle. The program also delves into the intricate musical landscapes of Leo Brouwer’s compositions and the orchestral ministrations of the Norwegian prodigy, Edvard Grieg.
