Christina Travlopoulou

Scholar, Christina Travlopoulou, and Go Nagano from Japan have been a guitar duo for the last several years. On 9 December 2005, they appeared at Yamaha Hall in Tokyo in the framework of the “Bach Plus” tribute where, with a six-string and eleven-string guitar, respectively, they performed Bach’s Prelude and Fugue, two partitas from the same composer, and sonatas from Bernard Joachim Hagen and Silvius Leopold Weiss.

As described in their concert programme, despite the fact that they have a different repertoire and interpretation style from their student years at Juilliard, the duo “clicked” due to the performers’ mutual interest in early works, which have not as yet been written for guitar.

They created a repertoire consisting of their own adaptations of solo and concertante pieces from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Their appearances in the United States, Brazil, and Japan in large halls, like New York’s Carnegie Hall and Kazals Hall in Tokyo, have received very warm receptions from the audience and critics.

In 2000, the duet was presented with New York’s International Artists Award. Christina Travlopoulou studied at the National Conservatory and the Filippos Nakas Conservatory. She undertook postgraduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London and continued her studies at the Juilliard School under the tutelage of Sharon Isbin. She has given many concerts and been honored with many distinctions.
