In a new and exciting
collaboration, guitarists Adam del Monte and Mak Grgić 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.

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.
