ALCHEMY: GUITAR DUETS FROM AROUND THE WORLD Andrew and Ariel have been playing as a guitar duo since 2014. As a duo, they have been described as “two stunning young guitarists…virtuosic” (Sydney Arts Guide) and have been praised for their “dazzling guitar playing” (ArtsHub).
Their performances have taken them variously around Eastern Australia as a duo, but also in collaboration with Australia’s celebrated baritone Josè Carbò in a group they call The Josè Carbò Trio.
Their current duo project entitled ‘Alchemy’, is named after the very first piece they learnt together, by the late great Australian guitarist and composer Phil Houghton. Alchemy is something of a ‘world-tour’, featuring some of the best music ever written/arranged for guitar duet, with pieces from: France, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, USA, and Australia, including Phil’s acclaimed ‘Three Duets’ that encapsulates Alchemy.
