In this unique concert; the highly original Braid-Podobedov Duo (David Braid: electric-archtop guitar & Sergei Podobedov: piano) will premiere their new (2014) transcriptions of Sweelinck’s later Echo Fantasias (originally for organ), alongside first performances of new duos and solos by David Braid, plus solos by Chopin and others.
David Braid (e.archtop guitar) and Sergei Podobedov (piano) make up this unique, London-based duo that combines the past and future in programmes of Renaissance and Baroque music alongside brand new works by the duo’s guitarist, David.
David and Sergei make their own transcriptions of the organ music of Sweelinck, J.S. Bach, et al, the combining of these two instruments produces a truly remarkable tone colour and is achieved by David’s use of a semi-acoustic archtop guitar, which blends seamlessly with the piano.
The duo orchestrate the works as would an organist, resulting in a fresh but stylistically-sensitive approach to this fascinating music of the contrapuntal school.
