Barski ljetopis Festival

Barski ljetopis Festival

The Montenegrin Guitar Duo is delighted to take part in Barski Ijetopis Festival 2017. Now in its 30th year, the Festival brings together distinguished artists from Montenegro and around the world. Their programme features movements from their historically informed transcription of J. S. Bach’s English Suite No 5 for two guitars alongside works by Gerard Drozd, de Falla and Piazzolla.

Naxos released the first of two volumes of Bach’s English Suites, transcribed by the duo for two guitars, in 2015; this unique project – to transcribe and record the complete set – has received excellent reviews. English Suites Vol. 2 was recorded in October 2016 and will be released by Naxos in 2017.

The Montenegrin Guitar Duo is frequently invited to eminent international venues around the world. Presenters including Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Festival Internacional de Musica y Danza de Granada, Kotor Art Festival, Koblenz Guitar Festival, A Tempo Music Festival, Shenyang International Guitar Festival and Daejeon International Guitar Festival.
