CD A0182: 37 & 8 Strings

37 & 8 Strings by Duo Ramos-Schneider

CD Cover 37 & 8 Strings

We would like to invite you to embark upon a journey from Mexico to Tierra de Fuego, where you will be seduced by instruments like the Paraguayan harp and classic guitar, playing authentic-popular and modern chamber music from South America. In just over an hour the repertoire covers music from the 1500's to the duo's own compositions, featuring adaptations of classical works and solo performances.
