Brilliant young Jordanian-Canadian guitarist - a new star in Canadian classical music

Winner of both the first prize and the Audience Choice Award in the Barrios WorldWideWeb Competition 2011, first prize winner of the Montreal International Classical Guitar Competition 2011, and second prize winner in the Tokyo 55th International Classical Guitar Competition, Tariq Harb has quickly established himself as one of Canada's leading guitarists. Born in Jordan to parents of Palestinian origin, Harb holds a Masters in Performance degree from McGill University and a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Toronto. He has given concerts in such prestigious venues as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Egypt's Cairo Opera House and the Glenn Gould studios in Toronto, where he was showcased as a CBC Radio NEXT! artist.

"Harb easily proves that he belongs to the class of great classical guitarists; the very ones who make you forget that the instrument has only six strings." -- The Jordan Times

One of the world's most celebrated guitar duos!

Since 1991 Dale Kavanagh and Thomas Kirchhoff have travelled to over 60 countries to give some 1300 concerts as the Amadeus Guitar Duo. Thoroughly at home with the repertoire for just two guitars, they have expanded their focus to include frequent performances with orchestra, notably in "Spanish Guitar Nights" featuring concertos by Joaquin Rodrigo for one, two and four guitars, and in concertos for duo guitars written especially for them by Roland Dyens, Carlo Domeniconi, Gheorghe Zamfir and others. Based in Iserlohn, Germany, Dale Kavanagh and Thomas Kirchhoff are also co-directors of the Iserlohn International Guitar Symposium, one of the largest and most important festivals of its kind.

"Surely one of the most innovative duos in the world." - Gitarre & Laute, Germany
