“...Souvenir de Russie is one of the very best of all duos from this period, and I have never heard it played as well as it is here. This is really great music making!”.
Al Kunze, SOUNDBOARD 2010
“...Your Sor DVD has everything I want from a guitar duet – virtuosity, sensitivity to phrase and nuance, a beautiful sound, a ﬁnely developed sense of ensemble.
A listener would have to have cloth ears and a heart of stone not to be profoundly affected by this superb performance of music”.
Colin Cooper, CLASSICAL GUITAR 2010
Born in 1970, Claudio Maccari and Paolo Pugliese started their studies and researches in 19th century music in 1988. Since then they have been redefining the musical language of the classic and romantic periods using original instruments and historical methods. Maccari and Pugliese are cited in the 1997 guitar history book, "The Classical Guitar". After playing their New York debut at Carnegie Recital Hall in 1992 they have been asked to give concerts and masterclasses by famous Institutions and important international Festivals such as the Royal Academy and the Great Britain International Guitar Festival of London, the Academy of Music in Gröningen, the Darwin International Guitar Festival, the Sydney Guitar Society, the Guitar Foundation of Australia, the Parco della Musica in Rome, and many American Universities and Societes.
Their natural artistic talent, together with constant musicological research, have allowed them to cooperate with world wide famous artists such as John Williams and Malcolm Bilson.They teach 19th century guitar at the Accademia Internazionale della Musica (International Academy of Music) in Milan.
