'Light-years ahead of any guitar duo past or present.' - American Record Guide
‘Listening to the Assad Brothers is a bit like hearing four hands playing one large guitar.' - Los Angeles Times
After a 15-year absence from the London stage, the 25th September sees the much-awaited return of the superlative classical guitar duo, the Assad Brothers, with a recital at the Royal Academy of Music.
Described by the Washington Post as quite simply 'the best two-guitar team in existence, maybe even in history', Brazilian-born brothers and Latin Grammy winners Sérgio and Odair Assad have set the benchmark for all other guitarists by creating a new standard of guitar innovation, ingenuity and expression. Having also played a major role in creating and introducing new music for two guitars, the duo is known for their uncanny ensemble-playing, which also extends to collaborations with such renowned artists as Yo-Yo Ma, Paquito D'Rivera and Gidon Kremer.
The duo have curated a colourful, bespoke programme for Echoes Festival showcasing music from various corners of the Luso-Hispanic world, including several original works alongside others from their native Brazil. Expect lashings of virtuosity, Latin swing and classical cool... Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear classical guitar royalty performing up close in the intimate, sumptuous setting of the RAM’s Duke’s Hall.
Advance booking highly recommended!
