Karin Schaupp & Pavel Steidl : Musica Viva
Two of the world’s greatest guitarists perform together for the first time, in this striking concert experience. Australian Karin Schaupp and Czech Pavel Steidl, both equally acclaimed for their technical brilliance, bring their renowned onstage warmth and emotional expressiveness to a program of the utmost intimacy and beauty.
Inspired by great guitar duos of the past, the music traverses a history of the guitar itself: from the delicacy of the tiny ‘Terz’ guitar, through the elegant 19th century model beloved of Paganini, and on to the modern instrument found in so many homes today.
'Pavel has incredible technique and sophistication, but much more than that, he plays from his soul…To be really moved by someone is a whole other level,' says Karin. The connection between the artists' musical imaginations was obvious from the first day of rehearsals, some months before the tour. 'It is like she is my sister,' Pavel says happily. 'We already thought the same way.'
Throughout the concert, Karin and Pavel share the stories and context of the music to create an entertaining, engaging and unforgettable experience.
Featured non-Australian music: Mertz, Sor, Paganini, Guiliani, Granados, Albeniz, Janacek, Gnatalli.
