Barcelona Guitar Duo, Carmen
Barcelona Guitar Duo made its highly praised by the critique and the audience debut in the prestigious Palau de la Música Catalana, one of the most beautiful concert halls in the world by performing Concierto Madrigal for two guitars and orchestra by Joaquín Rodrigo in 2001.
Today Barcelona Guitar Duo is considered as one of the best Spanish Guitar Duos defined by the critique as: "one of the big virtuosi of the 21st Century" (Televisión Nacional de Cataluña) and recognized for their "...fully achieved technical control and an evident finesse, precision and purity in the sound production" (Diaro de Mallorca).
Ksenia Axelroud & Joan Benejam are particularly dedicated to the study, investigation and performance of the Spanish music. For example, they made the first performance of Concerto by Manuel de Falla in its version for two guitars (May 2003 with the soloists of Albacete Symphony Orchestra) and the first performance in Russia of the Nocturnos and Puertas de Madrid for two guitars and orchestra by Federico Moreno Torroba.
