Duo Thémis :
From an early age Florence Creugny and Alexandre Bernoud have shared the same passion for music and the guitar, creating the « Duo de guitares de Lyon » with artistic director François Castet. They have given concerts at numerous festivals and received first prize by unanimous vote at the international competition of the UFAM (Union des Femmes Artistes Musiciennes). There followed a period during which their duo work gave place to the creation of the Quatuor Cordoba, in homage to this composer who dedicated several works to them. Today, following a career in which, notably, Alexandre Bernoud enters into the GHA Records catalogue, these two highly-experienced musicians have decided to focus on their duo work, bringing to centre stage the vast and enchanting repertoire for two guitars.
The “Duo de guitares de Lyon ” this becomes the “Duo Thémis”. The energy, complicity and virtuosity remain intact… their homogeneity, strength and sensitivity convey to the audience a unique and vibrant vision of the proposed works.
The Duo Thémis plays on guitars of the stringed instrument maker Dominique Field, Paris. Listen…
