The Portland Guitar Duo in Concert

The Portland Guitar duo brought their unique blend of music for two classical guitars to St. George’s sanctuary on April 15th.  The concert covered a broad repertoire of music from the 16th through the 20th century, including several transcriptions of works for other instruments.  The duo performed several selections from the Romantic Period on restored 19th century guitars, and offered background information on the music and the instruments.

Their playing was technically precise and sensitive, particularly in St. George’s warm acoustic.  The combination of low lighting and the duo’s intimate sound was truly moving. Audience members shared with me after the concert that they found the experience to be transformative.  Beautiful music in a beautiful space…
