Manzano & Garcia Duo

S. João do Arade - Ferragudo

Josep Manzano from Catalonia and Carlos Garcia-Benitez from England formed the guitar duo, Manzano-Garcia, in 2009. Both artists have long established careers as soloists and teachers of the guitar. Their first concerts together were in the Gerona area where they took part in the Sant Pere Pescador Music Festival and performed a series of concerts on the Costa Brava including Llança, Castelló de Empúries and Portbou. In the summer of 2010 the duo performed concerts for the Gerona Guitar Festival in Catalonia. These were followed by a tour of five concerts in Lima, Peru and concerts in Naples, Italy. In 2011 the duo opened the season with this program in Dresden, Germany and Burgos, Spain. The success of these tours and the resulting public demand has led to the recording of this CD illustrating the diverse repertoire offered at these performances during 2010 and 2011. This high definition recording presents music written over the last five centuries beginning with sixteenth century works and progressing through to twentieth century tonal repertoire. The majority of these works are arrangements for two guitars by Carlos Garcia- Benitez, and are indicated as such by an asterisk.
