Hello Cello Claude Gagnon

The Arpeggione Duo presents a new and rare sound, that of two of the most ancient string instruments, the cello and the guitar. The Arpeggione Duo marries the old with the new in its programs of music written in the 17th century to the present day. They specialize in elegant and evocative concert renditions and interpretations of musics of the world. Melding ancient art music with contemporary music comprises the conviction of the Arpeggione Duo: to render the music of all composers, be they ancient or a in a premiere of a commission, accessible and to synchronize it all into an enjoyable event.

Both performers have decades-long world touring experience on every continent, hold doctorates in their instruments and are long time pedagogues but this is not their persona. Thomas and Chris are performers who project meaning by “narrating” with their approach to interpretation. Audiences regularly comment on how engaged they are with both the performance and the performers.
