EVENT INFORMATION

The music of Spain has been deeply influenced by Moorish melodic and rhythmic elements. The light and shade of these musical soundscapes are most perfectly represented through the voice of the Spanish guitar. Spanish composers often created masterpieces to be performed by instruments other than the guitar, but all the while, they were trying to evoke the sounds and character of the guitar through whatever instrument or combination of instruments they were composing for. The Odeum Guitar Duo performs masterworks by Granados, Albéniz and other gifted Spanish composers who used the guitar as the implied voice and divine inspiration for their music.
