NoiZ Guitar Duo
NoiZ guitar duo are Pedro Izquierdo (Spain) and Dora Nakou (Greece). The two guitarists first met in the University of Arts Mozarteum in Salzburg, where they had the chance to study under the supervision of Eliot Fisk, Matthias Seidel, Ricardo Gallén and Marco Tamayo. Since 2009 they perform regularly in international festivals and chamber music concert circles in Europe and Middle East. They have collaborated with organisations such as the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation Live Music Now, the Ateneul Roman in Bucharest, the Instituto Cervantes in several european countries, the Megaron Concert Hall in Thessaloniki and the Spanish Embassy in Berlin and in Teheran, among others. Their repertoire encloses different music eras, from baroque till contemporary music, both original compositions as well as their own transcriptions, some of those published by Ediciones Eudora. Composers Konstantin Vassiliev, Simone Fontanelli, Agustín Castilla-Ávila, Rubén Parejo and Orestis Kalampalikis have dedicated some of their compositions to NoiZ guitar duo. Their debut CD “Portraits” was recorded in the University of Arts Mozarteum in 2009. Their second album “dos” was published by the german label KSG in 2014. Dora Nakou and Pedro Izquierdo live in Berlin, where they combine their artistic and educational practice.
