Different Duos Sunday #1: Watch Jason Vieaux (Guitar) and Yolanda Kondonassis (Harp) Make Magic Together
For the next several Sundays, we’re going to feature videos of the classical guitar in duo combinations with an assortment of other instruments. It’s fun to hear what the guitar brings to these matches; how its voice blends and/or contrasts. First up is guitarist Jason Vieaux performing with harpist Yolanda Kondonassis; for my money one of the more natural pairings of instruments sonically. Some of you may recall that the Summer 2015 issue of Classical Guitar featured Vieaux on the cover, and the story was somewhat based around the release of his duo album with Kondonassis, called Together(on Azica Records). You can read that story here, but check out this wonderful joint appearance from NPR Music’s extraordinary Tiny Desk Concert series that same year!
