Celebrating twelve years of performing and recording as a duo, guitar virtuoso’s Carlos Barbosa-Lima and Larry Del Casale have been hailed on two continents for going beyond the everyday Classical guitar recital repertoire and transport their listeners into the swing of the Brazilian musical world and beyond.
Maestro Carlos Barbosa-Lima and Larry Del Casale were first introduced to one another in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1997 by famed Puerto Rican composer Ernesto Cordero a dear friend to both Artists. At this time Mr. Del Casale was preparing a recording of Cordero’s music, the result was the acclaimed CD, Zenobia, and The Music of Ernesto Cordero.
“Carlos and Larry” as the duo is now referred to gave their first performance as a duo at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in 2003 to a sold out house. The Duo returned again to Weill Hall in 2008 again to a sold out house.
