Duo Conversa – Lydie Barrancos (Flute) and Pascal Bournet…

I have recently found a note about the Duo Conversa at twitter. The Duo Conversa is composed of Lydie Barrancos (flute) and Pascal Bournet (guitar). The duo plays music from South America and from Ireland, a great selection with good arrangements.

With its original repertoire of creations and arrangements around themes from the whole world, Conversa offers you a journey throughout flute’s and guitar’s tones.

The flute, instrument of all times, and the guitar, intrument of all continents, bring into echo the multiplicity of the world cultures’ original sounds.

Conversa will accompany us in an authentic and universal dialogue and then will echo in each of us the emotional world of us all.

Pascal Bournet has arranged all the pieces for flute and guitar. Most of the pieces have been published and are available, you can find the details on his website. Some of the pieces have been composed byPatrick Bournet, the brother of Pascal and a guitarist as well.

In the youtube channel of Pascal Bournetyou can also find some interesting pieces for clarinet and guitar as well as solo pieces for the guitar and duos for two guitars.

Sor – Study in B-Minor – As a Duet…

I have recently discovered several videos with the famous study in B minor as a duet. I have not found out who made the  arrangements for a duet, and I have not found the sheet music for this version.

It is interesting to listen to this arrangement of the study which uses the study as an accompaniment for a beautiful melody.

Kaori Muraji – Hundreds of Great Classical Guitar Videos

I had planned for some time to write about the Japanese guitarist Kaori Muraji.

Now I have just discovered four playlists with hundres of great videos played by Kaori Muraji and I have started listening to this fantastic guitar player from Japan.

You can find a short biography on her official website:

Kaori Muraji is considered one of the most prominent classical guitarists of today, and her challenges and activities are always regarded with keen interest by the entire classical music community.
Born in Tokyo, Japan Kaori Muraji received her first lessons on the guitar from her father Noboru Muraji at the age of three. From ten, she continued her studies with the renowned guitarist Shinichi Fukuda.

These are some of my favorite videos with Kaori Muraji up to now:
