A Salon Opera
Format: COMPACT DISC
Flute and guitar ensemble Flauguissimo Duo make their Resonus debut with this unique programme of works for flute and guitar, 'A Salon Opera'. Taking its inspiration from the Viennese salon music from the first half of the nineteenth century, when the music of the concert hall and opera was routinely brought into a more domestic setting, the Duo takes us on a journey through the rich repertoire both composed and arranged for the flute and guitar. Flauguissimo Duo was founded by flautist Yu-Wei Hu and guitarist Johan Lofving in 2008. Their wide repertoire, spanning from early music on period instruments to collaborations with new composers, has led to a particularly diverse performing career. They have performed many concerts in prestigious venues including Kings Place and Cadogan Hall in London as well as St. George’s Bristol and Sage Gateshead in Newcastle. They were also invited to perform in the Stratford-on-Avon Festival, Utrecht Early Music Festival Fringe, and others.
