The Edmonton Classical Guitar Society presents Duo Melis, Guitars on Friday, November 1, 7:30 PM at Muttart Hall in Alberta College (10050 Macdonald Dr)
Since their debut as Duo Melis in 1999, Spanish guitarist Susana Prieto and Greek guitarist Alexis Muzurakis have been increasingly recognized as one of the top guitar duos performing today. Acclaimed for their virtuosity, emotional intensity and unity as an ensemble, the duo has performed in many of the world’s prestigious concert halls, including the Berlin Philharmonie, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, and have appeared as soloists with such important orchestras as the Berliner Symphoniker, the Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie and the Radio Orchestra of Bucharest. Their extensive repertoire ranges from the music of the baroque to the contemporary compositions of Piazzolla, Ginastera and Leo Brouwer, and includes many of their own transcriptions. When they are not on tour the two guitarists teach at the Superior Academy of Music in Strasbourg, France.
