The Möller-Fraticelli guitar duo deliver a unique fusion of Swedish perfection and Argentinian passion.
A concert by guitar duo Möller-Fraticelli, two professional and accomplished players performing on Jorge Godoy III guitars, will be held at the old Masonic Hall, in Warkworth, on Sunday March 26.
The performance will mark the start of the Warkworth Music 2017 concert series.
Swedish guitarist and composer Johannes Möller has his name on a string of prestigious awards and was the winner of the GFA Concert Artist Competition in 2010, considered by many to be the most prestigious guitar competition in the world.
He has a Bachelor of Music with Honours from the Royal College of Music in London, where he studied guitar with Gary Ryan and Carlos Bonell, and composition with William Mival. He has received a Masters degree from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague and also received a scholarship to study privately with Pavel Steidl in the Czech Republic.
Buenos Aires-born Laura Fraticelli studied with Walter Ujaldón and Eduardo Fernández. Her love of music gave her the courage to emigrate to Europe where she continued her studies at the Royal College of Music in London and later, at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, where she was accepted in the class of renowned guitarist Zoran Dukic.
As a duo, Möller-Fraticelli has performed throughout Europe, and North and South America, as well as on radio and television.
Rick Anderson, from CD HotList, described their playing as “exquisite” and wrote that their 2014 album was “... one of the loveliest albums I’ve heard this year, in any genre”.
The concert starts at 4pm. Door sales $35, students free.
