"These gifted, unaffected and hard working young men have transmuted their huge energy and synergies into a mature and masterly performing presence." – The Royal Gazette

Brasil Guitar Duo, winner of the 2006 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, and hailed by Classical Guitar magazine for their "maturity of musicianship and technical virtuosity," is equally at home on a classical or a world-music series. Their innovative programming features a seamless blend of traditional and Brazilian works, resulting in a global touring schedule and a growing catalog of critically acclaimed recordings.

Brasil Guitar Duo strives to expand the repertoire for two guitars, with Lora contributing works of his own and Luiz arranging both classical and Brazilian music. The Duo performs a broad repertoire of classical guitar duos (Bach, Sor, Scarlatti, Debussy, etc.) combined with the traditional music of their native land (choro, samba, maxixe, and baião).
