Snapshots of South America
The second CD by the Dearing Concert Duo travels through South America with special stops in Argentina and Brazil. It was the winner of 2002’s Detroit Music Awards for “Outstanding Classical Album.” The CD of duets for classical guitar and flute highlight two of the most important works of the twentieth century for this instrumentation, “The History of Tango” by Astor Piazzolla, and “Suite Buenos Aires” by Maximo Diego Pujol. Snapshots has been played on radio stations across North America and the UK, and can regularly be heard on the CBC and WRCJ. Recorded at the Tempermill in Ferndale, Michigan during July, 2001.

“What makes the music sing is the Dearing’s lovely tonal blend, secure phrasing and the way Steven’s clean articulation and steady rhythm lays the foundation for Abha’s warm approach to melody.”
