Originating from Italy, Bulgaria, UK and Chile, they met in London and founded the quartet in 2018 as a natural consequence of their friendship and desire to make chamber music to the same exacting standards they each pursue in their solo performances. The Metropolitan Guitar Quartet’s performance at the University of Surrey’s Lunchtime Concert Series will be their public debut, with music by Tchaikovsky, as well as brand new arrangements of works by Joaquín Rodrigo and Terry Riley.
