Portland Guitar Duo
April 21, 2023 @ 7:00 pm
The Portland Guitar Duo comes to the Sprague Community Theater on Friday, April 21, at 7 p.m. This free concert and music history event is presented by the Bandon Library Friends and Foundation.
With a shared enthusiasm for the duo medium, James Manuele and Foti Lycouridis formed the Portland Guitar Duo in 1999. “Guitarology” is a program that offers a unique look at the history of the guitar and lute through Historical Performance, tracing the development of the instruments through 5 centuries of music with a collection that includes Renaissance and Baroque lutes, Baroque guitars, Romantic guitars of the 1800s, 10-string guitar and Modern classical guitars.
The duo discusses the aesthetics, repertoire, playing techniques, instrument construction and composers of each period, offering a distinct insight on the historical evolution of guitar music. This program gives expression to the current trend of correct historical interpretation and offers a comprehensive examination of one of the most versatile instruments in music history.
Admission is free, and seating is offered on a first come, first served basis.
