Twenty quartets for four guitars have been written in the last 15 years. Kalimba has already achieved the status of a concert hit and today belongs to the established repertoire of a guitar quartet. For my CD project I thought only the best is good enough, so I contacted the Eos Guitar Quartet. The quartet was immediately excited about the idea of collaborating. The four guitarists started to work on the work and invested not only all of their skills, but also their entire heart. In their hands the pieces began to live, learned to walk, were abundantly nourished, were raised steadily and lovingly, and so grew into strong personalities. Now they are ready!
Eos Guitar Quartet about the composer: Of course, we knew about the compositions by Jürg Kindle for solo guitar. However, we were not aware of his quartets until we made this recording. What we like especially about Jürg Kindle is his versatility and his imagination. In his compositions the options concerning sound that are open to a guitarquartet were used masterfully. Stylistically Jürg Kindle moves between Southamerican and African rhythms and occasionally touches on forms of pop music and musical variants of modern dance; everything is done playfully.
