The Brasil Guitar Duo will bring its signature stylish and expressive sound to the Coastal Concerts stage at Bethel UMC Hall in Lewes on October 19, 2019, at 7 p.m. This will be the first concert of CoCo’s 21st season and the 100th concert in the organization’s history.

For the award-winning pair, João Luiz and Douglas Lora, this will be their second Coastal Concerts appearance, having previously wowed the audience in November, 2013. Mr. Luiz also performed on the series in the spring of 2017 as a member of Trio Virado. And, there is a standout local connection: The Brasil Guitar Duo performed with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra under David Amado on a recent CD titled “The Book of Signs”, which was nominated in 2018 for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Classical Album.

Committed to performing new chamber music employing the guitar, the Duo joined cellists Yo-Yo Ma and Carlos Prieto for the October 2014 world premiere of El arco y la lira, a work for two cellos and two guitars by the esteemed Cuban composer Leo Brouwer. On the same program—a highlight of the sixth annual Festival Leo Brouwer in Havana—the Duo gave the Cuban premiere of Brouwer’s Sonata de Los Viajeros, which they had presented in its U.S. premiere the previous month and recorded for a Naxos CD of Brouwer’s complete works for two guitars, which was nominated for a 2016 Latin Grammy award for Best New Composition. The Brouwer sonata is a featured piece on the program for 10/19, along with works by Rameau, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Frederic Hand, and Egberto Gismonti.

Brasil Guitar Duo actively strives to expand the repertoire for two guitars, with Lora contributing works of his own and Luiz arranging both classical and Brazilian music. Appearing frequently in diverse non-traditional spaces, the Duo combines a broad repertoire of classical guitar duos (Bach, Sor, Scarlatti, Rameau, Debussy, etc.) with such traditional Brazilian dance forms as choro, samba, maxixe, and baião.

The Duo, a 2006 winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, and hailed by Classical Guitar magazine for its “maturity of musicianship and technical virtuosity,” is equally at home on a classical or a world-music series or performing a concerto with orchestra. João Luiz and Douglas Lora met in São Paulo as teenage guitar students and their successful partnership of over twenty years results from their innovative programming—which features a seamless blend of traditional and Brazilian works—leading to a busy global touring schedule and a growing catalogue of critically acclaimed recordings.

Music: Classical / Opera Music Southern Delaware
