“... but whoever lays his ear on the surface explains that he immediately hears his busy buzzing.”

                                                                                                   (José Luis Borges, from El Aleph)

 

The four musicians of the Aleph Guitar Quartet are enthusiastically committed to the music of our time. Since it was founded in 1994, the Quartet’s mission has been to present, promote, and make headway with the musical language and playing techniques of the 20th and 21st centuries, fueled by intensive collaboration with composers, sound engineers, and acousticians.

In the meantime, the Aleph Guitar Quartet has helped to create a new, extensive and future-orientated repertoire for the classical guitar which is being constantly expanded by a large number of both renowned and younger composers.

ANDRÉS HERNÁNDEZ ALBA, TILLMANN REINBECK, WOLFGANG SEHRINGER and CHRISTIAN WERNICKE perform regularly at such international music festivals as MaerzMusik (Berlin), Guitar Foundation of America (USA), Eclat (Stuttgart), Styrian Autumn (Graz), Warsaw Autumn, Archipel (Geneva), MusicadHoy (Madrid),
One Month Festival (South Korea), Klangspuren Schwaz (Austria) and Time of Music (Viitasaari).

The Quartet is sponsored by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, the Goethe Institute, the Spanish Ministry of Culture, the Province of Baden-Württemberg and the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics.”
