Composers also featured include Albeniz, Hindemith, Bizet and Brouwer as well as Three Short South American Folksongs for guitar duo.
Two larger highlights include The Carmen Suite arranged by William Kannengeiser for the LAGQ, featuring a quartet of Western students. Leo Brouwer’s "Cuban Landscape with Rumba" will be performed in a guitar orchestral setting featuring the entire ensemble.
