Duo Montes-Kircher

Bio:
The German guitarist Irina Kircher and the Venezuelan guitarist-composer Alfonso Montes, made their debut as a duo in 1984. They are now considered to be one of the finest duos in the world, producing 27 recordings and performing more than a thousand concert in 37 countries.

The international press has been unanimous in its recognition, respect and admiration for the Duo, invariably praising their virtuoso technique, the precision and complicity of their performance, the evenness of sound, and what is perhaps most important, the enormous emotional range, with which they touch their audiences.

They are regular guest at the most important events in the International Guitar calendar, including the Cambridge Guitar Festival, Cannington Summer school, Gdansk, Barcelona, Montpellier, Arles, Caracas International Festival, USA GFA, Bergen, Iserlohn, Nürtingen,West Dean, Upsala, among others.

Irina and Alfonso have given recitals in such prestigious halls as the Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room in London, The Alte Oper in Frankfurt, The Mozart Saal in Stuttgart, The Beethoven-Kammermusiksaal in Bonn, Teatro Teresa Carreño in Caracas, Munch Museum in Oslo, Philarmonie Berlin, Teatro Colon Bogota, and are regulars guest soloist of international orchestras including the Berliner Symphoniker, Saint John Smith Square of London, The Allegro Orchestra of París, the Orchestra of the Warsaw Conservatory, the Caracas Sinfonietta, and the Orquesta Sinfónica de Venezuela.

They both taught at the IUDEM, University of Music in Caracas, and due to harassment by the Chávez regime they left Venezuela in the year 2000.

They teach and direct the guitar department at the Stuttgarter Musikschule and are the Directors of the International Rago Guitar Competition which takes place every year in the city of Stuttgart where they live.

“the Dúo Montes-Kircher could be placed alongside the few really top class duos the Guitar world has produced.”

Steve March, Classical Guitar England

“The catching rubatos and the intricate rhythms were no obstacles for the interplay of the Dúo. One could feel that the two musicians were creating something on the way intuitively and that they also touched a lot more strings than the ones the guitar is actually equipped with”.

Bergen-Tidense, Norway

“Dialog, counterdialog, communion of strings and a great richness of musical colours that nobody could be indifferent to”

El Nacional, Caracas

Seating is limited. Call (305)-933-4777 to reserve! Tickets are $30.

Strengthening a collective memory through painstaking photography
Kalos Music & Art School presents “Tamunangue: memories of the tradition”, a heartfelt exhibition about a very important musical tradition from Venezuela under the view of Vera Francheschi . As a young professional documentary photographer, she has been able to capture a vibrant expression of a collective memory. The pictures where taken at Kalos Music Art & School, the only one of its kind in south Florida which has a class cultivating this musical expression.

“Tamunangue” describes a folk tradition, which refer to a ritual fest integrated of music and dance, so popular in certain communities in occidental state of Lara in Venezuela. The “Tamunangue” is also the most complex and magnificent expression of traditional choreography in Venezuela.

Franceschi, Venezuelan, gathered a group of Venezuelan musicians and students living in Miami that come from very different backgrounds but they shared the passion for their cultural musical roots that come from Lara state in Venezuela. Vera Franceschi caught the interpretation of Tamunangue in several workshops’ sessions.

The portraits of this exhibition want to reinforce their Venezuelan identity by keeping alive one of their most important tradition. It is Franceschi´s desire that the visitors can absorb the sonority present in her work and, at the same time, share with you this beautiful collective memory.

The result of this documentary work is going to be shown next January 31st at Kalos Music & Art School, opened since august 2011 and run by very talented Venezuelan musicians: Saul Vera and Eugenia Mendez. Valia Franceschi has coordinated the event and she is also the curator of the exhibition. We will expect you from 7 pm to 9 pm, and you will have the opportunity to, not only meet the faces and instruments behind Vera´s lens, but also to meet them in person and hear them playing some Tamunangue tunes.

“The documentary photography of Vera Franceschi thus constitutes a body of evidence that goes beyond its relationship to reality. Making use of the technological means available today, it captures the essence of feeling in the actions that people execute. (…) Smiles, movements, emphasis, gestures are all conveyed with a fresh sonorousness that is unexpected for this type of activity. The photography, in the proposal, acquires another dimension, (…)”
