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 evoke “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 and are sought-after festival artists. The programme includes arrangements of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.3 and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and a work by Nick Cartledge written for the quartet.
