Long time colleagues Ben Dix and Dan McKay join forces as Australia’s newest guitar duo for their first recitals for the Melbourne Guitar Festival’s 2020 Recital Series. Known for their work within the Melbourne Guitar Quartet Ben and Dan are thrilled to bring an exciting program of works to Australian audiences spanning the baroque, late romantic and modern periods.

Major works by composers JS Bach and Keith Jarrett sit alongside the relatively unknown and recently discovered work of the Austrian Ferdinand Rebay. Written for the perhaps unlikely combination of baritone and standard classical guitars, Rebay’s Grosses Duo has proven to be a major discovery and surely destined to become a favourite for guitar enthusiasts everywhere. Alongside this the duo performs Ulrich Stracke’s transcription of Bach/Busoni’s Chaconne BWV 1004 in D Minor, breathing new life into this monumental and virtuosic work, and will explore the delicate beauty of Keith Jarrett’s classic improvised work from Koln in 1975, recently arranged for the duo by Ben Dix.

Join Ben and Dan after the cocnert for a special meet and greet!

ONLY 120 seats available! This is a small and intimate performance space!
