Album Notes
Kithara Duo (Olga Amelkina-Vera and Fernand Vera) was formed in 2002, when they were graduate students at the University of North Texas. Since then, they have performed nationally as well as in Europe and South America. Kithara Duo’s critically acclaimed debut CD, "Beings," was released by Soundset Recordings in 2011. The duo is home to an international award-winning composer (Olga), and their first album is a world premiere recording of her music for guitar duo. In addition to Olga’s original compositions, Fernand and Olga regularly contribute to guitar duo repertoire through arrangements and transcriptions.

"Their work is outstanding. They have a beautiful sound, a wide range of tone, a subtle and broad control of dynamics, perfect ensemble, and a subtle and expressive phrasing. This is some of the finest guitar duo work I’ve heard since the Assads, and I look forward to hearing more from this pair."
American Record Guide

"A delightfully diverse program of music…shared with an admirably seamless level of musicality and technique. The real discovery of the evening were three original compositions by Olga Amelkina-Vera who gently stretched the expectations sharing her delightful musical imagination."
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

"The duo impressed with touching musicality, elegant presentation, and seamless coordination."
