Canadian Guitar Quartet Plays Roux

The fantastic Canadian Guitar Quartet with Julien Bisaillon, Renaud Côté-Giguère, Bruno Roussel, and Louis Trépanier play Prologue, Fouge, et Allegro Trépidant by Patrick Roux (b.1962). Recorded live in June 2020, at Domaine Forget de Charlevoix. This comes via their YouTube channel. Great playing as always by the quartet and nice big fugue in the second movement which makes for good ensemble exchanges and a virtuosic ending. Guitar quartets can be a difficult texture to control by the CGQ always keep tight rhythmic accents and a strong sense of growth and momentum.
