The duo was founded in October 2007 by young Czech guitarists Matěj Freml (*1982) and Patrick Vacík (*1984). In May 2008 the young musicians won their first duo-competition in Gorizia, Italy. Concert invitations followed, including concerts in the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Poland and Slovakia. The important step forward was the offer for the duo to give a recital at the Shanghai Music fair 2010 followed by the other concert tours including masterclasses to China (Qingdao, Suzhou, Xuzhou, Guangzhou, etc.) for Martinez Company.
Since 2012 the duo Siempre Nuevo has been cooperating with a Czech mezzosoprano Barbora Polášková. Due to this cooperation new transcriptions for two guitars and voice came and are still coming into existence. In 2017 their new CD Guitarra Cantante was released.
A brand new project “4+2” has started in 2017 with Epoque Quartet, one of the most famous Czech string quartets nowadays. Contemporary composers have been involved in building up a complete program of new compositions in the style between jazz, tango and modern classical music.
"Delicate and intensive: duo Siempre Nuevo. […] Matěj Freml and Patrick Vacík are both – each in his own way – musicians par excellence." (Cuxhavener Nachrichten, 1. September 2009)
