The Tantalus Quartet is thrilled to welcome Canadian guitarist Adam Foster as the newest member of Tantalus Quartet. Adam’s playing combines elegance and sensitivity as a result of study with guitar luminaries Alex Dunn, Ricardo Cobo, and Bruce Holzman. Adam specializes in chamber music, and is a passionate champion of music by living composers. He recently performed the American premiere of Stephen Dodgson’s Quintet for Guitar and Strings, and is an authority on the music of Hans Haug. Adam’s performing interests also extend to 8-course Renaissance Lute, French Theorbo, and Tenor Viol da Gamba.
Upcoming engagements for the Tantalus Quartet include the 2012 Iserlohn Guitar Symposium in Germany, 14th International Festival “Silesian Guitar Autumn” in Poland, a six-city tour of Panama, as well as performances throughout North America.
Tantalus Quartet is Kristian Anderson, Matthew Cochran, Adam Foster, and Stephen Mattingly.
