A SHARED RESONANCE: THREE CENTURIES OF ORIGINAL GUITAR DUETS
These concerts will feature duets performed on three types of instrument: the Baroque guitar, the Early Romantic guitar, and the modern classical guitar.
Each of these guitars has it’s own distinctive sound, and original music that was written for it, or in this case for two guitars. So we will perform music by some of the major guitarists and composers of the last three centuries to tell the story of how the guitar duet developed and changed, and is still changing.
The programme will include works by Corbetta, Carulli, Sor, Mertz, Ferrer, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Rodrigo, Brouwer, Assad, and others. All the music will be duets originally composed for two guitars, so no arrangements of music for other instruments.
