The James-Rucco Classical Guitar Duo Nov. 21

spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
The James-Rucco Classical Guitar Duo will be giving a concert on Sunday, November 21 at 5:30 PM in Guezzetta Recital Hall. This event is FREE and open to all UA students

The duo of Pasquale Rucco and Douglas James specializes in the guitar literature of the early 19th century performed on authentic instruments of the period. The two first met and became friends at guitar festivals in northern Italy during the early 1990's. They have now been performing together for over ten years, charming audiences worldwide with their interpretations of music from the first true "golden age" of the guitar.

The duo's repertoire features some of the most famous of the early 19th century guitar duo masterpeices as well as newly discovered gems. Their concert programs frequently include works by the more familiar composers such as Carulli, Giuliani and Sor combined with their lesser known contemporaries including Filipo Gragnani, François de Fossa, Antoine Baron de Barcó, Frederic Spina, and Antoine de Lloyer. Their debut CD featured works by Gragnani, Fossa and Barcó as well as Giuliani's arrangements of Rossini's popular overtures to Il Barbiere di Siviglia and La Gazza Ladra. This critically acclaimed disc was recently followed by A Night at the Opera , an all-Rossini recording featuring 19 th century arrangements of popular opera overtures and the famous La Danza tarantella.
