Guitar/violin AM Duo plays Sunday in Denver

Denver — Chamber music returns to The Roxbury Arts Group’s Old School Baptist Church in Denver on Sunday, July 18, at 2 p.m. when the AM Duo performs a program of classical and romantic music for violin and guitar.

The AM Duo, Emil Altschuler on violin and Jérome Mouffe, guitar, is rapidly emerging as one of the country’s most promising violin and guitar duos, following their debut performance at the Isabella Steward Gardner Museum in Boston.

Jérôme Mouffe is a brilliant guitarist from Belgium who has dazzled international audiences in a variety of countries, including Spain, France, Italy, Austria, Germany and the United States. He has studied at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, and is the second-prize winner of the 2007 GuitarFest International Competition in Boston. Jérôme’s repertoire ranges from the music of the Renaissance to the 20th century.

American violinist Emil Altschuler has enjoyed ovations at Lincoln Center in New York, San Francisco’s Helen Von Ammon’s Emerging Artist Series, The Aspen Music Festival, and Castello di Galeazza in Italy. His next CD will consist of works by Bach, Chausson, Sarasate, Paganini, and compositions of his own based on modern themes. Next season he will be a soloist with the Eureka Symphony in California.

He teaches at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education and at the New School of Music in Boston.
RAG’s Old School Baptist Church, in the most beautiful valley in Delaware County, is an unparalleled venue for acoustic music. For more information and reservations call 607 326-7908. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 students and seniors.
