Rounding off an eclectic weekend of live guitar music on Sunday 21 May is Manchester’s very own dynamic and innovative Aquarelle Guitar Quartet–  recognised as one of the world’s leading guitar quartets and known for its extraordinary ensemble in performance and expansive repertoire.

Formed originally at the Royal Northern College of Music (in 1999), the quartet went on to win several  awards from the Musicians Benevolent Fund, Tillett Trust and Tunnell Trust, In 2016 the Quartet was invited to perform at Classic FM Live at the Royal Albert Hall with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields; subsequent acclaimed  performances include many in other major UK concert halls in the UK, followed by numerous international engagements which have taken them throughout Europe, most recently visiting Germany, Spain, Denmark, Greece, Estonia, Poland and Ireland. The ensemble made its debut in Asia in 2014 with a series of concerts in Seoul and they returned to South Korea in 2016, this time to perform at the Daejeon International Guitar Festival.

Manchester Guitar Festival 2023 has been generously supported by The Granada Foundation.
