Barry Guy, one of the most virtuosic and imaginative improvisers, joins forces with his partner Maya Homburger, whose interpretation of solo violin sonatas is very much inspired by his freedom and creativity. Since he began working closely together with Swiss-born baroque violinist Homburger – they met on an Academy of Ancient Music tour in 1988 – Barry Guy has been bringing his musical interests closer together. Once kept distinct and separate, they are now allowed to spur each other, to alternate, or intermingle. The music of the Homburger / Guy Duo creates a conduit through which music from the 17th century and earlier can mingle effortlessly with contemporary music and improvisations.
Sincere thanks to Maya Homburger and Barry Guy for supporting Butler Gallery and helping us to raise vital funds for the Gallery and to Mount Juliet Estate, our sponsors and long time valued supporters of Butler Gallery.
