    April 15, 2018 3:00 pmThe Atlantic Guitar Quartet is a contemporary music ensemble actively engaged in expanding the repertoire through the music of living composers. John Lewis of Baltimore Magazine puts it this way: “Mesmeric chamber music that … radiates an intensity that has nothing to do with volume or the layering of instruments. Instead they draw upon an internal combustion that smolders without igniting. It’s a perfect match for music that wafts and curls and, ultimately, lingers so hauntingly.” We couldn’t put it any better.
