Guitars for St Cecilia's
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Gordon Ferries and Stephen Morrison return with a new compilation to delight their many followers. Rich stores of nineteenth-century works for guitar duet have inspired them to bring this once popular but now neglected genre back into concert prominence. The distinctive blending of their own historic instruments will enhance the repertoire's appeal for today's audience. The programme includes Sor's L'Encouragement, Carulli's arrangement of the first two movements of Haydn's Symphony 104 in D major (London), Beethoven transcriptions, and a rare selection of virtuoso compositions by Antoine de Lhoyer.
