This is the artisic output of the Duo Classico. It is the love for music which connected a flautist and a guitarist permanently: as they have been nurturing an artistic and emotional relationship for many years. Music connects people and, as in our life, sometimes it is sweet, sometimes spicy, and this is expressed in our album.
