Duo Burstein & Legnani - classical and world music for cello and guitar
Finally, the duo Burstein & Legnani is back on tour in Germany in 2023. Visitors can look forward to a phenomenal listening experience, an exciting concert of classical and world music as well as perfectly formed original compositions.
Classical masterpieces by Albéniz, Vivaldi, De Falla and Legnani, among others, will be performed. For other program highlights, the duo Burstein & Legnani has arranged new works for cello & guitar, including the Carmen Fantasy, Op. 25 by Pablo de Sarasate, on themes from the opera of the same name by Georges Bizet, as well as "Bamidbar" by Roberto Legnani.
The duo's world music is in peaceful and harmonious dialogue with cultures: different eras and genres merge and lead the audience into a magical world of sounds. Passionate melodies, pulsating rhythms and ancient stylistic elements resound in an artful new guise - leading from the Moorish Middle Ages into the 21st century, with fluid boundaries between Orient and Occident.

The duo opens the gate to a fascinating world of sound for the listener: two virtuosos with élan and an intensity, whose temperament is of impressive perfection and surprising instrumental role distribution. Roberto Legnani's precise playing is of the highest elegant mastery, while Ariana Burstein's remarkably supple bowing conveys a sense of fiery abandon.
Evidence of high instrument-making skills are the cello built by Konrad Stoll and the award-winning Hopf guitar "La Portentosa". The two charismatic artists Burstein & Legnani let their high-quality instruments speak with music that touches.
Awards: Ariana Burstein and Roberto Legnani have recently been awarded several scholarships by the German Music Council as well as by the GVL. Furthermore, in 2021 and 2022, two CD productions and several composition projects were funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media - within the framework of NEUSTART KULTUR. Thanks to the two protagonists, the unusually distinctive combination of cello and guitar has established itself continuously and formatively in concert life over a period of more than 25 years.
