    Assads "Masterful" Adelaide Guitar Festival Performance
    Michael Wilson

    Sérgio and Odair Assad, whose album Jardim Abandonado was released this fall, performed in their first of three concerts as part of the Adelaide International Guitar Festival this past Saturday. Also on the bill for this "Global Guitar" program were Abdoulaye Diabaté and Banning Eyre, Guy Strazz and Rodrigo Galvão, Simon Shaheen, and Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. The Adelaide Advertiser writes of the Assad brothers' set:

    [They] performed a truly classical duet for acoustic guitars, interweaving, ornamenting, and supporting each other perfectly. Their program of South American pieces was highly expressive, showing masterful control of mood and tonal quality.

    Up next for the Assads at the Guitar Festival: two concerts this weekend with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra featuring Ravel's Rhapsodie Espagnole.
