C-TEDESCO: MUSIC FOR 2 GUITARS (Brasil Guitar Duo: João Luiz and Douglas Lora) (Naxos: 8.570778)
- Out of stock
With a catalogue of more than 200 works with opus numbers, and many others without, few composers have written such a wide variety of immediately appealing music, as rewarding for performers and listeners alike, as Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
His 'Sonatina Canonica', Op. 196 is a staple for many guitar duos, its warm tonal language enlivened by ingenious counterpoint. Fired by profound admiration for the music of J. S. Bach, his 'Les Guitares Bien Temp?®r?®es', Op. 199 comprises 24 preludes and fugues in all major and minor keys, the first dozen of which are performed here by the award-winning young Brasil Guitar Duo.
Classical Guitar Magazine exclaims: \The maturity of musicianship and technical virtuosity displayed...is simply outstanding." in describing the Brasil Guitar Duo, winner of the 2006 Concert Artists Guild International Competition.
