|Bio||The Duo Amythis is made up of guitarists Véronique van Duurling and Harold Gretton. Formed in December 2008, the duo performed its first concert in Canberra in 2009. Since then, they've played concerts all over Europe, Australia, USA,Vietnam, Iceland, and Mexico. Based in Germany since 2009, and won prizes in competitions in France, Germany, Romania and Poland.
After a successful crowd-funding campaign, they recorded their first CD in 2016. The eclectic album includes works from Spain, Sweden, Australia, England, Ireland and Serbia.
Both guitarists enjoy the contrast of their very different musical backgrounds. They find that the contradictions between their approaches bring additional depth, playfulness, and interest to the music they interpret together as a duo. They play a program of works of many genres and time periods, and delight in sharing their interpretations with a wide range of audiences.
Wonderful artists! I saw them play in Melbourne for the Melbourne Guitar Foundation and was totally blown away! And such lovely people too 🙂
