Comprised of Italian guitarists Matteo Mela and Lorenzo Micheli, SoloDuo has performed throughout Europe, Asia, the United States and Canada. The duo has a prolific recording career, ranging from Astor Piazzolla and Isaac Albéniz to the music of Bach and Scarlatti. In addition to classical, romantic and modern repertoire, SoloDuo has extensively explored 17th- and 18th-century Italian music on original instruments. SoloDuo will perform Mauro Giuliani’s transcription of the Sinfonia from Vincenzo Bellini’s “Il pirate,” Claude Debussy’s “Suite bergamasque,” J.S. Bach’s French Suite No. 5 (BWV 816) and Piazzolla’s Tango Suite. The concert is followed by a reception for subscribers.
