Duo46 (The Kennedy Center)

Duo46

Inspired by a visit to the Alhambra in Granada, Spain, and the vibrant flamenco dancing and music of Seville, Argentine-born composer Jorge Liderman has adapted centuries-old Sephardic melodies into a fiery, evocative contemporary song cycle. The resulting Aires de Sefarad sparkles and soars on Duo46’s bow and frets, reflecting Spain’s past and present, its vast and varied culture. The recording has garnered praise as “one of the most gorgeous releases of the year” by the Cincinnati Enquirer and made the 2007 GRAMMY entry list for Best Contemporary Classical Composition. One of the leading violin and guitar duos in contemporary classical music, Duo46 embraces music by living composers, most often music composed specifically for them. Since 1994, guitarist Matt Gould and violinist Beth Ilana Schneider have commissioned, recorded and performed new music and conducted ensemble and composition residencies all over the world.
