Duo Diavolo is an exciting musical duo of guitar and violin featuring award-winning artists Duncan Gardiner (classical guitar) and Dora Piekart (violin). Following much success as a professional ensemble ideal to perform back-ground music for functions and corporate events the two musicians decided to become a serious chamber music ensemble with the view of performing recital repertoire. The duo has since performed for the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, St. Georges Cathedral, on board the Leeuwin as well as a successful 11-concert-tour of regional and metropolitan centres across Western Australia in late 2007.
Duo Diavolo strive to present a wide range of musical styles from original compositions, up-beat world music, cool jazz, Gypsy swing, tangos, latin dance-music as well as high-lights from the classical repertoire.
Well, what can I say? First on the programme, the only one to perform his own music, with a gorgeous duet partner, playing splendid music with superb style!
