Details

Who can forget the thrilling playing at the lunchtime concert given by Duo Diez in April 2015 in Inverness Town House?

Duo Diez is a musical collaboration between the Greek guitarist Dimitris Dekavallas and the Hispano-Suiza violinist Violeta Barrena. The chosen name for the duo originates from the Spanish word "diez" which means ten, the number of their combined strings.

Since meeting at the Royal Academy of Music as stidents, they have both developed interesting and varied international solo careers - at one time Violeta played with Scotland's esteemed Maxwell Quartet. A shared interest in playing and promoting Spanish and Latin-American classical music signalled the start of Duo Diez in 2012.

Their repertoire encompasses a wide range of styles from Bach, Mozart and Schubert to Sarasate, Piazzolla and Villa-Lobos.
