The Omni Foundation will host SoloDuo in San Francisco next month

SoloDuo is the name under which Italian guitar virtuosos Matteo Mela and Lorenzo Micheli give joint performances. This month they will be the featured artists in the next program organized solely by the Omni Foundation for the Performing Arts for their Dynamite Guitars concert season. Their repertoire ranges from the early Baroque period through all subsequent centuries into the present day. The highlight of their San Francisco concert will be the world premiere of a sonatina that Alexandre Tansman composed for Andrés Segovia in 1952, whose manuscript was only recently discovered.
