Avido Duo: Spotlight

Choosing to reestablish well-known music works in a new light using interesting arrangements, AVIDO Duo gives them a new character and sound while still upholding their creative foundations. Within its innovative aspect, “Spotlights”strives to connect diverse musical époques and establish an intricate contextual bridge between them. The concept’s structure is based in a development of the music spawning from the Baroque era, over the Classical music period, until the pieces of modern music and Duo’s own improvisations. This progress is presented by the unusual blend of sound timbres, musically arranged in a way to enable the interchanging of the melody between the two instruments. “Spotlights” simultaneously showcases and glides through the musical époques, crossing between them with an unnoticeable transition with a sophisticated sound conception, ultimately creating
a new artistic-musical endeavor.
