Listening to the Assad brothers is a bit like hearing four hands playing one large guitar. The interaction of the Brazilian siblings is so precise, so perfectly synchronized, that it reaches far beyond musical partnership--even between brothers--into a kind of creative symbiosis.

An aura of purity pervaded the Thursday night concert given by the guitar quartet Quaternaglia in the Little Theatre at Cal State Fullerton. The foursome brought a program of music primarily from their homeland Brazil--not one dominated by the transcriptions one might expect, but a concert of pieces intended for this relatively new genre and, at least in the cases of Sergio Assad, Paulo Bellinati and Egberto Gismonti, written by other well-established guitarists.

It should be enough, you'd think, that the Brazilian Assad family would have produced two prodigious musical brothers. Odair and Sergio, who performed at the Ambassador on Thursday, are dazzling guitarists, together and apart. But there's yet another guitar-wielding Assad, sister Badi. Her surprise appearance, playing a couple of Brazilian-jazz pieces on the program, both broadened the musical palette and tipped the balance away from classical repertoire.
