Once again I have discovered a fantastic concert with guitar music. Pavlo, Rik Emmett und Oscar Lopez – the P.R.O. guitar trio – have performed this concert on February, 21st at the L’Astral in Montréal
Three master players collaborate to form an acoustic trio of passionate, fiery guitars. Pavlo, Rik Emmett and Oscar Lopez have each forged brilliant independent careers, garnering awards both at home and internationally and winning the hearts of their respective fans.
The trio has just released the first CD Trifecta. The Concert on Demand of the CBC is not available any more.

I like this music very much and have enjoyed very much listening to the complete concert. The mediterranean style reminds me sometimes to the famous trio John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola and Paco DeLucia, but the group has created an own style and some new and interesting ideas.
