Duo Sonidos is an award-winning chamber duo founded in 2006 by classical guitarist Adam Levin and violinist William Knuth at the New England Conservatory. In 2010, Duo Sonidos released their debut CD to widespread critical acclaim and won 1st prize at the Luys Milan International Chamber Music Competition in Valencia, Spain. Their mission is nothing short of building a fresh and expansive chamber repertoire for their combination. In the first half of this program, Duo Sonidos presents two commissioned scores: Volaverunt: Homage to Francisco Goya by the Spanish-Cuban composer Eduardo Morales-Caso, and the world premiere of Jardin Bajo La Luna (Moonlight Garden) Suite by Spanish composer David Del Puerto. The program also includes the New York premiere of Tre Divertimenti by Catalan composer, Salvador Brotons.

In the second half of the program, guitarist Adam Levin presents several new solo works dedicated to him from four generations of Spanish composers, which are also featured on his newest Naxos release, 21st Century Spanish Works for Guitar, Volume 1. Selections include the US premiere of Two New Suggestions by Salvador Brotons, and the New York premieres of Handeliana by Ricardo Llorca, Caprichos No.8: Abstractions of Albeniz by Leonardo Balada, and Nostos: Suite for Guitar by Octavio Vazquez.
