Odeum Guitar Duo

The Odeum Guitar Duo returns to the Museum to perform works by J. S. Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Antonio Soler, Wolfgang A. Mozart and Johann K. Mertz. This concert rounds out a decade of performances by the guitar ensemble at the Museum. Various musical epochs are expressed in a unique way by the driving intensity, varying shades of tonal colors and subtly adjusted volume levels of the two vintage Spanish classical guitars, which serve to bring to the listener enjoyable experiences of the emotional content inherent within the musical masterpieces.
