Brasil Guitar Duo

The Brasil Guitar Duo, a 2006 winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, is equally at home in classical and world music. Its innovative programming features a seamless blend of traditional and Brazilian works, resulting in a full global touring schedule and a growing catalogue of critically acclaimed recordings. The duo has appeared internationally in major concert series and at festivals in Cuba, Germany, England, South Korea, Colombia, Brazil, Austria, Panama, Poland and Bermuda. Committed to performing new chamber music employing the guitar, the duo joined cellists Yo-Yo Ma and Carlos Prieto in the October 2014 world première of El arco y la lira, a work for two cellos and two guitars by Leo Brouwer. On the same programme the duo gave the Cuban première of Brouwerʼs Sonata de Los Viajeros, which they had presented in its United States première the previous month. Duo members João Luiz and Douglas Lora met in São Paulo as teenage guitar students and have been performing together for eighteen years. The duoʼs primary studies were with Henrique Pinto alongside Fabio Zanon, Paulo Martelli, Sergio Abreu and Alice Artz. Douglas Lora earned his masterʼs degree at the University of Miami as a student of Rene Gonzalez. João Luiz received his masterʼs degree from Mannes College, the New School for Music, and with sponsorship from the Augustine Guitar Scholarship Fund a doctoral degree from Manhattan School of Music. His teachers were Michael Newman, Frederic Hand and David
