Watch inspirational performances by outstanding musicians from the Royal College of Music, whilst enjoying a hot drink and a pastry in the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room.

Hailed as ‘a guitar ensemble of the finest grade’ by German newspaper Neue Westfäli-sche, the NOVA Guitar Duo was formed in 2016 when both of its members were studying at the Royal College of Music.

Driven by the extended possibilities of combining the 6 and the 8-string guitar, the duo explore the extensive guitar repertoire as well as performing their own refreshing arrangements of music originally written for other instruments and ensembles.

The programme will include:

Domenico Scarlatti
Sonatas
K, 87, K 380, K 466
