The Mēla guitar quartet brings together four exceptional guitarists who play with an “exalted level of perfection” (naxos.com).
Since being International Guitar Foundation young artists in 2015 they have gone on to release a CD of the guitar chamber works of Stephen Dodgson with NAXOS in 2017 and are Park Lane Group young artists for the 2018/19 season.
Known for their “benchmark performances” (Mark Houghton), the Mēla guitar quartet’s “musicianship makes you forget that you are listening to four guitars and carries you to a different sound world” (Thérèse Wassily Saba, Gendai Guitar magazine), their playing “shines, shimmers with sparkling clarity, what’s more, they play from memory and make pieces their own; wonderful music making!” (Phillip Houghton)
They have performed in venues such as St. James’ Church, Piccadilly; Kings Place, Hall one; Milton Court, Barbican; International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Manchester and Jimi Hendrix’s bedroom (!), at Handel and Hendrix in London.
