Notes and Editorial Reviews

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. “Spotlights” strives to connect diverse musical epoques 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. “Spotlights” simultaneously showcases and glides through the musical epoques, crossing between them with an unnoticeable transition with a sophisticated sound conception, ultimately creating a new artistic-musical endeavor. Avido Duo was founded in Read more Vienna in 2015 by Alvaro Collao Leon and Djordje Davidovic. They have won prizes at competitions in Ann Arbor, Michigan and Osaka, Japan. Read less
