Duo Elias / Cordas
Izhar Elias - guitar
Fernando Riscado Cordas – guitar
Izhar Elias and Fernando Cordas are both internationally renowned early 19th century specialists. During their concerts they show many different types of (early romantic) guitars. Their romantic guitars breathe new life into famous melodies.
The duo seeks to transcend the literal sense of their musical texts towards the lifeblood and spirit of the music. This fresh approach has led critics worldwide to praise their lively performance and profound understanding of the music. They have performed as a duo in many prestigious festivals and concert series throughout Europe.
In their latest project they work on unique arrangements of piano sonatas by Schubert, played on the same kind of guitars Schubert himself used.
