Musica Barocca a Due

Hannu Annala, guitar
Mari Mäntylä, decacorde

• New release Musica Barocca a Due includes works by the Baroque and Galant composers transcribed for the guitar. Works are finely performed by the duo Hannu Annala & Mari Mäntylä.

• All four movements of Antonio Vivaldi's The Sonata, Op. 1 No. 8 (RV 64) are here heard possibly for the first time performed on two guitars.

Hannu Annala and Mari Mäntylä have been playing together as a duo since 2003. Both have contributed actively to the development of guitar music and teaching in Finland. Mäntylä specialises in a more unusual variant on the classical guitar: the 10-string decacorde. Her solo debut recording with this instrument turned to be very popular (Decacorde, ABCD 261).
