Brasil Guitar Duo with JIJI

  • Michael D Eisner Center for the Performing Arts 240 west broadway Granville, OH 43023 (map)

The Vail Series presents a two night event with Brasil Guitar Duo with JIJI performing classical guitar music.

Brasil Guitar Duo, a 2006 winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, and hailed  by Classical Guitar magazine for its “maturity of musicianship and technical virtuosity,” is equally at home on a classical or a world-music series or performing a concerto with orchestra. The Duo combines a broad repertoire of classical guitar duos (Bach, Sor, Scarlatti, Rameau, Debussy, etc.) with such traditional Brazilian dance forms as choro, samba, maxixe, and baião.

JIJI made her Carnegie Hall/Stern Auditorium debut as soloist with the award-winning New York Youth Symphony, performing the world premiere of a new concerto written for JIJI by American composer Natalie Dietterich in the 2018/2019 season. Born in Seoul, South Korea, JIJI (Jiyeon Kim) began playing classical guitar at the age of nine, and was accepted to the Korea National University of Arts at age fourteen.  She attended the Cleveland Institute of Music, was one of the first two guitarists in Curtis’ distinguished history, and earned her Master of Music degree from the Yale School of Music.
