The NOVA Guitar Duo: Nelly von Alven, guitar, and Luiz Mantovani, 8-string guitar
Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, New York, NY
November 15, 2018
For the third evening in their series entitled “Le Partage de la Musique” (“The Sharing of Music”) Pro Musicis presented another superb concert, this time featuring the NOVA Guitar duo. The duo combines the considerable talents of German guitarist Nelly von Alven (on 6-string guitar) and Brazilian guitarist Luiz Mantovani (on 8-string or “Brahms” guitar). The whole may not always turn out to be greater than the sum of its parts, but with this pairing – in addition to their individual gifts – there is a oneness of musical thought which makes them a rare find.
