Description

VIDAʼs ability to “conjure up an orchestral palette of colour and effects” (Classic FM) combined with their “exquisite tonal and dynamic control” has firmly established them as a passionate and masterful ensemble who sparkle with “vitality and spontaneity” (Acoustic). VIDAʼs seemingly effortless sense of ensemble and their broad range of timbres and dynamics evokes “listening to an entire orchestra and not merely to four guitars. There’s only one word for it: magic” (Gramophone).

Since forming in 2007, VIDA has performed to critical acclaim in major UK, USA and European venues. They are sought-after festival artists throughout the UK and Europe and in 2011 VIDA made their US debuts in Los Angeles (LMU Guitar Festival) and New York (Baruch Performing Arts Centre).

In 2012 VIDA were artists in residence at CSU’s Summer Arts program in Monterey Bay CA. The Vida Guitar Quartet continue to play concerts world-wide and in 2019 embarked on their second visit to China, giving a three week tour of the county.

Vida have recorded four CDs to date on the BGS label; ʻLove, the Magician’, ‘Rhapsodyʼ, ‘The Leaves be Green‘ and ‘Bachianas’ featuring music influenced by J.S. Bach. VIDA are D’Addario string classical artists.
