German guitar duo Ralf Illenberger and Peter Autschbach will present their outstanding talent on two acoustic guitars in an encore of Magic Guitar Night.
The event is Sunday, July 15, at 7 p.m. at Relics in Sedona.
Peter comes back to Sedona to finish the new CD they started recording in March this year. After a very successful show last April at Relics they decided to do an "Encore Show." The popular guitar duo will also perform in fall more than 15 concerts in clubs and concert halls in Germany.
Ralf Illenberger got popular in Germany in the '80s with his duo work with fellow guitar player Martin Kolbe, and they were known as "Germany's Best Guitar Duo.
They created timeless compositions on two guitars and got nominated for the German Record Awards. In his new duo with Autschbach, he revived this music again and they became a very successful act in Germany
Autschbach is an accomplished guitarist in Germany; he played the guitars for the rock operas "The Who" and "Queen." He also writes for Acoustic Guitar Magazine and is a great teacher.
Illenberger earned a Grammy nomination in 1997 (Passion for Guitar) and is touring and producing all over the world, he performed in 50 countries and released 16 CDs so far.
For his Sedona audience this concert is different. It will highlight compositions for two guitars, very interwoven music, borrowing from all genres between classical and popular music.
After their last show in December in Germany a fan left a note on Illenbergers web page :
"Ralf und Peter, I saw live shows with Paco d.L, Al di Meola, Lawrence Juber, J.Ackermann, Dominic Miller, Eric Clapton, Kolbe&Illenberger, Leo Kottke, Ed Gerhardt, Grossman, and the European Acoustic Greats... yesterday evening Peter Finger, Claus B-F. etc....
But you were the Best! I hope you'll continue to do great shows together..."
Expect an outstanding musical experience, music that will transport and transform you.
