“Personable, humorous and engaging,” the Vida Guitar Quartet are four of the UK’s most exceptional guitarists, appearing on North America’s and Europe’s most prestigious stages for classical guitar. Renowned as educators and for their innovative outreach, they mentor and inspire the world’s largest youth guitar education program in the UK and delight audiences with their passionate recital programs.
“Vida conjure up an orchestral palette of colour and effects . . . they play with technical brilliance and precise ensemble, creating alternately smoky and glittering colours in Falla’s El amor brujo that suit the gypsy heart of the music so well.
“Vida sparkled with vitality and spontaneity, weaving a rich tapestry of colour and breathtaking range of dynamics and percussive effects that held the audience spellbound . . . the visual interplay between them enhancing an already superb performance. These are outstanding musicians, if you can, go hear them play.”
“Their range of timbres and colouration is so broad that one really does forget that there are four identical instruments. Their dynamic control, which ranges from an almost inaudible pianissimo to ranging fortissimos, is impressive.”
International Record Review
“A crossover Fab Four . . . the electrifying Vida Quartet gave [the Beatles] a run for their money . . . The capacity audience took every opportunity to praise the quartet—standing, shouting, and clapping with gusto.”
