Sheu Pettit Guitar Duo Play Castelnuovo-Tedesco

Sheu Pettit Guitar Duo

The Sheu Pettit Guitar Duo are Connie Sheu and Adam Pettit playing the 3rd movement of Italian composer Mario CastelnuovoTedesco’s (1895–1968) Sonatina Canonica on two “pre-Millenium” guitars built by Thomas Humphrey (so-called because they pre-date his famous Millenium model guitars. Recorded at the Guitar Salon International showroom in Santa Monica, CA. This comes via the great Guitar Salon International and their YouTube Channel. Wonderfully played, love the ensemble exchanges and matched articulations and textures.

Sonata canonica, Op. 196 (1961) is a stand alone Sonata but Tedesco also wrote a LOT of other duos in his collection Les Guitares bien tempérées, Op. 199 (24 preludes and fugues in all 24 major and minor keys – 1962) and also Fuga Elegiaca. We are so very lucky to have these great duets from such a fantastic composer.
