5849374Little Symphonic Duet
DateThursday 25th July 2019
DescriptionThe Little Symphonic Duet are an astonishing duo capable of performing symphonies with nothing more than a charango, a small, traditional stringed instrument from the Andes, and a guitar. Led by Italy-based, highly accomplished Chilean musician Michel Barros Bessone, who has developed uneta - a way of plucking that produces the higher notes in an orchestra - this duo will dazzle us with Michel's incredible arrangements of works by Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi, Rossini and more. Expect one or two traditional, folkloric tunes thrown in, and a special guest! These are some of the pieces they have in mind to perform (never set in stone!): - Overture "The Thieving Magpie" G.Rossini - Swan Lake (act 2 n. 10) P.I.Tchaikovsky - Allegro non molto "l'inverno" op.8 n. 4 A.Vivaldi - Eine Kleine Nacht Musik W.A.Mozart - Rondo alla turca W.A.Mozart - Czardas V.Monti - Alla Hornpipe G.F.Handel - Preludio BWV 1006 J.S.Bach - Fuga BWV 1001 J.S.Bach - Tarantella Traditional - Overture (finale) "William Tell" - Allegro con Brio op. 67 "Symphony n. 5" L.V.Beethoven Little Symhonic Duet on Youtube: The charango is a traditional Andean string instrument originally built from the shell of an armadillo, using it as a resonant box. With time the charango became an important instrument of South American music, and the most emblematic instruments of the Andean folk tradition. Michel Barros Bessone is a composer, guitarist and charango player born in Santiago de Chile. As a charango player - an instrument with which he has developed a unique and personal style - he has performed live extensively both as a solist and in bands taking his music around to the most important European cities.
