James K. Schooler Memorial Concert
One of America’s premier instrumental ensembles, the Grammy Award-winning LAGQ is one of the most multifaceted groups in any genre. Pat Metheny’s Road to the Sun, composed for the LAGQ, is filled with Metheny’s trademark grooves, haunting melodies and rich extended harmonies. The Quartet honors some of this country’s most innovative guitar masters, from rock innovators Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa, to country master Chet Atkins, to bluegrass legends Flatt and Scruggs and the young jazz guitar virtuoso Julian Lage.
“The world’s hottest classical ensemble or its tightest pop band? However it helps you to think about the LAGQ, keep the emphasis on superlatives for its unrivaled joy, technical elan and questing spirits.” — Los Angeles Times
