True Diversity from Adam del Monte and Mak Grgic
In a new and exciting collaboration, guitarists Adam del Monte and Mak Grgic team up for a fresh and spontaneous duo, with their program "La Buena Vida", taking you on a journey through Latin American and Spanish landscapes. Brand new arrangements of Guastavino, Granados, Albeniz, traditional Argentinian Tangos and original flamenco compositions by Adam del Monte, cast a renewed spirit into the world of the guitar duo expressed through two dynamic artists, each with their own voice.
A New Musical Landscape
Because a path of musical diversity has opened up in recent years in classical music and the classical guitar world there is space for a path of versatility and inclusiveness. In this program that Mak and Adam are offering, you will find a wide array of styles and flavors, ranging from the tradition of the Spanish "romantics", like Albeniz and Granados; to the more 20th century edginess of Ginastera, the populism of Guastavino, to the out right vanguard of progressive flamenco compositions by Adam del Monte, arranged by him for two guitars. Mak, being a young and versatile classical guitarist with much experience in other styles, offers the perfect complementary counter balance to del Monte's style.
In a world of guitar duos, this one sounds completely fresh and rooted in attention to detail.
