Featuring: Steve Cowan and Adam Cicchillitti
Steve Cowan and Adam Cicchillitti are respected and acclaimed guitarists, quickly establishing themselves on both the guitar circuit and concert stages across Canada and abroad. Classical Guitar Magazine calls Cicchilllitti a “superb Canadian guitarist” and Cowan “one of Canada’s top contemporary classical guitarists.” Together, they form the dynamic ensemble Cicchillitti-Cowan Duo, a guitar partnership that focuses on expanding the guitar duo idiom through collaborations with living composers, while also performing popular duo works and their own arrangements of impressionist works from 20th-century France and Spain.
The Cicchillitti-Cowan Duo presents intriguing programs and has just released an album of Spanish guitar music on the Analekta label. Their next album, featuring exclusively Canadian works by multiple generations of celebrated Canadian composers, was released with Analekta in the fall of 2019.
