Maciek Pysz Classical and Acoustic guitar Gianluca Corona Classical guitar
Guitar duos don't get formed too often but with their new release, Maciek Pysz and Gianluca Corona have proved that the duo format is alive and kicking! There have been few albums of two acoustic guitars since Ralph Towner and John Abercrombie's duo albums and with 'London Stories', the duo continues this tradition. Clearly inspired by the great guitar trio albums of John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola and Paco De Lucia as well as duos such as Bireli Lagrene and Sylvain Luc, Pysz and Corona have created a strong musical statement following in the footsteps of their famous predecessors. Most of the music was composed in and inspired by London. The music is fresh and melodic but also technically challenging and with extended harmony.
