About 19th Century Italian Music

Stauffer Guitar Duo was founded in 2014 in order to explore the 19th century repertoire for two guitars on replicas of instruments made by Johann Georg Stauffer (1778-1853). Beside this main area of work the duo has performed on modern guitars in various programmes of Spanish and South American music and contemporary Scandinavian music including works written for the duo. Based in the Faroe Islands the Stauffer Guitar Duo has performed under the auspices of the Faroese Radio, the Faroese Composer´s Society and made numerous concerts all over the Faroe Islands including the Summartónar Festival 2015, 2016 and 2018. Stauffer Guitar Duo has also co-worked with other musicians in concert projects such as “19th century Guitar Trios” with Danish guitarist Jens Overbye (2017) and “Birds and Beasts” with Faroese violinist Angelika Nielsen and American guitarist Christopher Ladd (2018).
