Melbourne Guitar Quartet – Trigram

Tonal colour, interweaving lines, and rhythmic verve.

Melbourne Guitar Quartet (MGQ) has carved out a reputation for curating diverse programs, establishing themselves as one of Australia’s leading ensembles. Through a blend of innovative arrangements, technical flair, and superb ensemble playing, the quartet explores the vibrant world of guitar in imaginative ways, amassing praise from avid lovers of chamber music, guitar aficionados, and concert first-timers alike.

Performing a rich repertoire of contemporary Australian works and thoughtfully reimagined arrangements, MGQ takes listeners on a mesmerising journey through vast tonal colour, interweaving lines, and rhythmic verve. In a world premiere, Sanghoon Lee’s Trigram is an enthralling multi-movement piece that draws upon the influence of Korean temple music. Celebrating the distinct timbres of the guitar family, this composition champions one of Melbourne’s emerging compositional voices in this spellbinding performance.

The Melbourne Recital Centre/Melbourne Conservatorium of Music Composition Award was made possible from 2016–2019 with the support of Majlis Pty Ltd, and from 2020 with the support of Ms. Jane Kunstler.
