Podcast: Airs of authority. Concertos for guitar duo.
April 20, 2018
The combined gifts of the extraordinary Brasil Guitar Duo and two eminent Latin American composers produce a depth of experience and rare musical beauty in two concertos for guitar duo. Cuban composer Leo Brouwer has written ten concertos for guitar, but The Book of Signs is his first for guitar duo. Paulo Bellinati’s Concerto Caboclo pays specific tribute to the music of São Paulo State in Brazil. The work was commissioned by the São Paolo Symphony Orchestra specifically for the Brasil Guitar Duo, João Luiz and Douglas Lora.
