Guitarists Adam Cicchillitti and Steve Cowan form an exciting and unique duo that focuses on expanding the contemporary classical guitar repertoire through commissions and collaborations with living composers. Currently completing doctorates at McGill University with acclaimed guitarist Jérôme Ducharme, Cicchillitti (Dmus., 2022) and Cowan (Dmus., 2019) present daring and virtuosic programs featuring new music for the guitar from prominent Canadian composers as well as a mix of their own arrangements of impressionist works from 20th-century France and Spain. Having recently collaborated on an album of Spanish guitar music under the Analekta label, these two long-time friends and award-winning guitarists will tour the Canadian East with Debut Atlantic in 2018. Their next album with Analekta will feature the music of multiple generations of celebrated Canadian composers and will be released in August 2019.
