Great Guitar Duos With Karin Schaupp And Pavel Steidl

When:  From 25-Feb-13 to 09-Mar-13, at 7pm on Monday 25th February, 2pm on Saturday 9th March
Where:  City Recital Hall, Angel Place, Sydney
 

Two of the world’s finest guitarists bring their first collaborative tour to Sydney on Monday February 25th, when they perform at City Recital Hall, Angel Place. This is the first tour in the Musica Viva International Concert Season, which has seen Karin Schaupp and Pavel Steidl travelling around Australia since mid February. They will perform a second concert at Angel Place on March 9th, before closing the tour in Adelaide on March 12th.

Australian Schaupp and Czech Steidl, both equally acclaimed for their technical skill, bring their renowned onstage warmth and emotional expressiveness to a program of the utmost intimacy and beauty. Inspired by great guitar duos of the past (often husband and wife teams), the music traverses a history of the guitar itself: from the delicacy of the tiny ‘Terz’ guitar, through the elegant 19th century model beloved of Paganini, and on to the modern instrument found in so many homes today. Throughout the concert, Karin and Pavel will share the stories and context of the music to create an entertaining, engaging and unforgettable experience.
