Accidental Music Festival Presents the Dublin Guitar Quartet
This world-class Irish ensemble has a weakness for Ligeti, Glass, Part and Reich – and if you recognize those composers without their first names, you’ll get along just fine with the Dublin Guitar Quartet. Touring on their soon-to-drop album of Philip Glass string quartets (to be released on Glass’ own recording label), they perform in Orlando courtesy of the Accidental Music Festival, which morphs into a consistently forward-looking presenting group in the months between festivals. Their dedication to new music as opposed to old chestnuts serves them, and their audience, well. 7:30 pm Sunday; Orlando Museum of Art, 2416 N. Mills Ave.; $22; accidentalmusicfestival.com.
