BCGS Virtual Concert: Transcontinental Duo

Sunday, November 29, 2020

The Hingham Public Library and the Boston Classical Guitar Society are pleased to offer this season's concert series in a virtual way!

The concert will be performed LIVE on Zoom. Register online here, and we will email you the Zoom meeting link on the day of the program.

The Transcontinental Duo will present Brazilian music of the styles that were on the cusp of popularity before the Bossa-nova swept them to the sidelines: choro and samba.

The music will be played in the most common choro instrumental combination, the flute and the Brazilian 7-string guitar, flute being by far the most popular leading instrument of a choro, and the 7-string guitar taking the job of the rhythm and bass section. The Transcontinental Duo will play some of arrangements that have become classics, as well as modern pieces written in the old idiom, including one written by Igor himself.

About the musicians:

Hiroko Kajimoto (flute) and Igor Golger (guitar) have performed as the Transcontinental Duo since 2000. Both graduates of the Boston Conservatory, their repertoire ranges from classical music, to Russian Gypsy, to funk rock. Both cultivate the skill of transcribing music from old records, so their repertoire includes many gems from cultures that don't have extensive written record. The Transcontinental Duo present their programs at various venues, from concert stages and public libraries to senior homes and hospitals.
