Cube Squared Records presents ‘World Tour’, the fifth full-length recording by the
Oregon Guitar Quartet. In this project the venerable ensemble takes an imaginary musical
tour of the planet, playing from the vast and rich world music traditions. Music from
Japan, Java, China, Russia, Greece, Catalonia, Zimbabwe, Argentina and Mexico is
masterly performed in newly created arrangements.
Critics and audiences alike have praised the Oregon Guitar Quartet’s performances and
recordings - each has garnered international attention and airplay on hundreds of radio
stations across the nation.
The Oregon Guitar Quartet is an ensemble of four of the finest classical guitarists
working in the Pacific Northwest. The four members, David Franzen, John Mery, Jesse
McCann and Bryan Johanson have come together to create a new chapter in the history of
the classical guitar quartet. Their collective musical interests span centuries of repertoire
and dozens of music styles. Each is an experienced performer with diverse background.
