“…Gorgeous tone, rock-solid rhythm, beautiful phrasing, and no identifiable technical flaws. This is great playing.”
American Record Guide

João Luiz and Douglas Lora, guitar

The Brasil Guitar Duo, a 2006 winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, and hailed by Classical Guitar magazine for its “maturity of musicianship and technical virtuosity,” is known for its innovative programming featuring a seamless blend of traditional and Brazilian works. They keep a full global touring schedule and have a growing catalogue of critically acclaimed recordings. Committed to performing new chamber music employing the guitar, the Duo joined cellists Yo-Yo Ma and Carlos Prieto for the October 2014 world premiere of El arco y la lira, a work for two cellos and two guitars by esteemed Cuban composer Leo Brouwer. Their CD of Brouwer’s complete works for two guitars was nominated for a 2016 Latin Grammy Award for Best New Composition. This performance will be followed by a subscriber reception.
