Performing a mixture of contemporary Australian compositions and standard works from the guitar duo repertoire, The Australian Guitar Duo consists of Rupert Boyd and Jacob Cordover, both respected soloists in their own right. They met and formed as a duo in the year 2000 while undertaking studies at the Australian National University School of Music, where they studied with renowned Australian guitarist Timothy Kain.
The Australian Guitar Duo has been broadcast on radio stations throughout Australia and the United States and was a prize winner of the chamber music division of the Australian Guitar Competition. Mr. Boyd and Mr. Cordover both play hand-made Australian guitars,Â which are featured on their debut CD, Songs from the Forest.
Australian guitarist Rupert Boyd is acclaimed as one of the most talented guitarists of his generation. He has been described by The Washington Post as â€œtruly evocativeâ€, and by Classical Guitar Magazine as â€œa player who deserves to be heard.â€ His solo CD Valses PoÃ©ticos received the following review in Soundboard, the quarterly publication of Guitar Foundation of America: â€œBoydâ€™s playing is beautifully refined, with gorgeous tone . . . musically and technically flawless . . . [the Granados is] one of the best recorded performances of this work on guitar.â€
Jacob has been hailed as â€œan exceptional guitaristâ€ (Ultima Hora) whose playing â€œmanages to get to the very soul of theâ€¦ musicâ€ (Classical Guitar Magazine). Jacob has appeared as soloist with the Orquestra SimfÃ²nica de Balears and the Orchestra dellâ€™Accademia lâ€™Ottocento, as well as in numerous solo recitals that often feature 19th century repertoire played on authentic guitars. His â€œintuitive musicianship and impeccable techniqueâ€ (Leicester Mercury) allow him to enjoy a vibrant international career that spans 3 continents.
