The Concordis Guitar Quartet was founded in 2005, and is currently formed by Eudoro Grade, Jorge Pires, Pedro Rufino and Manuel Toucinho. The partnership between these musicians, along with their personalities and distinct influences, put together the motto of a mystic beautiful sonority that the four guitars enhance together.
Stylistically speaking, this quartet spotlights Portuguese music, some exclusively arranged for Concordis Guitar Quartet. An example of this it the singular arrangements of songs by Carlos Paredes and Zeca Afonso, by the composer Pedro Louzeiro, which are presented on the first CD – “Gatherings”. Naturally, besides this unique choice of program, the Concordis Guitar Quartet also includes the general repertoire for this ensemble, playing some of the most well-known composers.
Concordis Guitar Quartet has been playing extensively throughout Portugal and abroad, in multiple events such as: “Festival Guitares en Picardie” and “Festival de Guitare de Vendome” (France); “Festival MED” (Portugal); Festival “Onde Sonore” e “Ossola Guitar Festival” (Italy); Festival Internacional de Guitarra de Palencia”, “Festival Internacional de Guitarra de Ronda” (Spain), “London International Guitar Festival” (United Kingdom), Festival Internacional de Guitarra de Faro, Festival Internacional de Guitarra de Lagoa (Portugal), Fundação Oriente (Macau - China), Festival Internacional de Guitarra de Hong Kong (China), Antena 2 Festival, São Carlos National Theatre, Lisbon (Portugal) and Guitar Art Festival, Belgrade (Serbia).
The Concordis Guitar Quartet plays exclusively on Savarez.
