'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.

|Interpretations: Miya Masaoka // Christopher Williams and Robin Hayward|
Robin Hayward, tuba
Christopher Williams, contrabass
Four Moons of Pluto
Reidemeister Move and Miya Masaoka will kick-off the 2018-2019 Thirtieth Anniversary Season of the Interpretations series on Thursday, September 27th at 8pm at Roulette, 509 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, NY. The Interpretations Series is dedicated to nurturing the relationship of composers with the growing community of new music virtuoso performers.
Berlin-based duo Reidemeister Move (Robin Hayward, tuba, and Chrisopher Williams, contrabass) will perform Arcanum 17 (New York Premiere): a 45-minute piece composed by Christopher Williams & Charlie Morrow, with texts from André Breton's book of the same name, set in the 8.1-channel immersive sound environment.
Reidemeister Move is a duo dedicated to exploring and expanding the possibilities of sustained-tone music in just intonation for their instruments. Hayward's self-designed microtonal tuba developed together with the instrument manufacturers B & S, and Williams' previous work with Charles Curtis and LaMonte Young's legendary Theatre of Eternal Music, provide the backbone for a performance practice based on purely tuned intervals, noise, corporeal rhythms, and spatial resonance.
Composer/koto and electronics performer/improviser/performance and installation artist Miya Masaoka's Four Moons of Pluto - a piece which explores deep and relational resonances - will be performed by an all star cohort of 5 contrabass players Robert Black, Shayna Dulberger, Rebekah Griffin-Greene, James Ilgenfritz, and Zach Rowden. Masaoka also presents a new piece for string quartet, with a quartet featuring Stephanie Griffin (viola), Alex Shiozaki (violin), Michael Haas (cello) and violinist TBA.
Miya Masaoka is a composer, sound artist and musician based in New York City. Classically trained, her work operates at the intersection of spatialized sound, frequency and perception, performance, social and historical references. Whether recording inside physical objects or inside a plant or the human body, within architecturally resonant spaces or outdoor resonant canyons, she creates incongruencies that feed the paradox of the contemporary condition.
