Celso Machado orignally wrote this piece for eight guitars. After hearing our performance of his Danças populares brasileiras on our CD Da Fuga a Milonga, Celso decided to make an arrangement of Folguedo for the Zagreb Guitar Quartet. Here you can hear it in a live performance. It consists of two movements: Adagio and Folguedo.
Watch video of the Zagreb Guitar Quartet playing Bach’s Fugue BWV 578 at the Guitar Days in Zagreb, May 2009.
Along with their innate passion, the performance of the Zagreb Guitar Quartet shows superior conscientiousness in the concert preparation and a high level of performing together, evident in their brilliant technique and a sense for leading phrases on the guitar, an artistic string instrument enjoying agelong popularity in Croatia.
