Beijing Guitar Duo play Scarlatti

beijing-guitar-duoThe Beijing Guitar Duo playing the the D min Sonata by Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757). I find their very clean and articulate approach to really suit Scarlatti. They really have created a similar sound and therefore blend so well that, if I close my eyes, I can start to think there is only one person playing. Well done. If you don’t know much about the duo then here’s some brief info via their about page:


Composed of Meng Su and Yameng Wang, the Beijing Guitar Duo first met at the Central Conservatory in Beijing, China, where they both studied with Chen Zhi. In 2006, the year of their graduation, they met Manuel Barrueco while he was on tour in Hong Kong. At his personal invitation, they applied and were accepted to his studio at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, USA, on a full scholarship. At his recommendation, they officially formed the Beijing Guitar Duo in December 2009.
