Vickers Bovey Guitar Duo
Informative, entertaining and exquisitely performed, this programme by acoustic guitar duo Julian Vickers and Daniel Bovey introduced us to an unfamiliar genre with its specialist composers. In perfect synchrony, linked by occasional smiles and expressive eyebrows, these accomplished young masters of their instrument took us through a wonderful musical landscape, sometimes so quietly that we could hear a local blackbird and a squabble of sparrows in the background. The whole programme was delightful but Piazzolla’s Tango Suite in particular was thrilling, especially the Andante rubato! I’ve already found them on YouTube and look forward to their returning to Brighton, soon!
