Minneapolis Guitar QuartetMinneapolis Guitar Quartet

With the passion, style, and musical sophistication borrowing from the best chamber music and string quartet traditions, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet has successfully made its case as one of the world's leading guitar ensembles since its founding in 1986. The quartet has performed throughout the United States in both recital and with orchestras. The group's first rate repertoire ranges from Renaissance and Baroque to Spanish, Latin American and Romantic, to highly imaginative existing and newly commissioned contemporary works.

The Minneapolis Guitar Quartet has been heard on the nationally syndicated Saint Paul Sunday, and on National Public Radio's Performance Today. From its first four CDs on the Albany and GSP labels, the group has garnered unanimous critical acclaim.

Committed educators as well as performers, members of the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet (Joseph Hagedorn, Maja Radovanlija, Ben Gateño, and Wade Oden) often appear to teach and present workshops at festivals and universities throughout the United States.
