Contemporanea Guitar Duo

The Contemporanea Guitar Duo, a collaboration between guitarists Isabella Abbonizio and John Olson, is dedicated to performing vibrant and engaging contemporary repertoire for two guitars, with an emphasis on twentieth-century European music. They also have an interest in early music, and much of their original approach resides in their attentive research into connections between composers from distant times. They met as members of the New York City Guitar Orchestra, and had their debut performance as a duo in 2011.
