Delta Guitar Quartet performs Patterns by Freya Arde (b.1988). The Delta Guitar Quartet includes Judith Beschow, Juliane Byrenheid, Simon Riedlecker, and Albrecht Bunk. This comes via Siccas Guitars and their great YouTube channel. Beautiful performance by the Delta Guitar Quartet with excellent pacing and a wonderful sense of growth and decay in Arde’s work. I also really appreciate the different octave guitars that create a clarity to the texture and musical parts. Here’s the Siccas description via their YouTube:
The Delta Guitar Quartet was founded in 2018 and has been playing since 2021 with Judith Beschow, Juliane Byrenheid, Simon Riedlecker from Dresden and Albrecht Bunk from Zwickau. The four guitarists are united by their shared passion for chamber music and their studies at the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt Weimar. Here they present their first video production with the piece “Patterns I” by the film music composer Freya Arde, which was dedicated to the quartet. The work plays with the contrast between stability and instability. The composition is based on a simple whole tone motif around which rhythmic shifts are repeatedly formed. The special instrumentation of third, fifth, fifth bass guitar and classical guitar enriches the piece in its fine spectrum of colours.
