Folias Duo at Maturango Museum
June 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20
The Michigan based husband and wife team of Folias Duo present a program of all original classical music for flute and guitar influenced by Argentine tango, Astor Piazzolla, and South American folk.
Folias Duo’s fifteen year performer/composer collaboration has taken this nomadic husband and wife duo to stages throughout the United States and around the globe including Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy, Portugal, Argentina, and Chile. They have a fearless approach to developing new compositions for flute and guitar, an expertise for arrangements of Argentine tango, and a passion for South American folk, jazz and world music. About Folias’s performing and composing, Robert Schulslaper of Fanfare Magazine writes: “Carmen Maret and Andrew Bergeron are facile players…they draw on tango rhythms and melodies sometimes; at other times they write with a scenic sensitivity…mysterious…charming…evocative,” while Todd Gorman of American Record Guide calls the Folias Duo “daring in self- written music” and “a nice touch of originality.”
