The Geminus Guitar Duo in Concert


The Geminus Guitar Duo ( Foti Lycouridis and Hideki Yamaya) perform music that is not heard on stage often, and their mission is to reveal to their public rare duets from the early days of the medium and to enrich the repertoire with their own transcriptions.

In their concerts they use original period instruments of the 19th c. with 6, 7 and 10 strings, which they salvaged and had restored by expert luthiers. They also use modern classical guitars with 6 and 10 strings. Their concerts render a new visual, acoustical and aesthetic experience for the audience. The 19th c. guitars are used for compositions specifically written for them that are rarely performed authentically, as well as for transcriptions of the same period for pianoforte and piano. On the other hand, the use of the 10-string guitar allows a wider range of sound and the performance of substantial compositions from piano, chamber music and orchestral repertoires.
