Notes & Reviews:

Over the last 25 years the Amadeus Guitar Duo have consistently proved to be one of the world's most exploratory and admired ensembles. Through their many international tours, recordings, and the symposium they established at Iserlohn in Germany, they have extended the repertoire for the duo and for guitar duo with orchestra. In this release, their inaugural one for Naxos, the program ranges across the centuries from the magnificent arrangement of Handel's Suite in G minor, HV 432, through music by the 19th c. guitar composer Johann Kaspar Mertz, to contemporary works including the brilliant and virtuosic Fantasie d'Oriente e d'Occidente by Carlo Domeniconi, which was given its world premiere by the duo.
