The Duo ReCuerda was founded at the beginning 2003, when the musicians met at the Musikhochschule (Conservatory) Cologne, in Wuppertal. In the same year they went on their first concert tour to Madeira, and since then they are regularly active on stage domestically and abroad. Both are much in demand as lecturers for their instruments; they teach and give concerts regularly at seminars and festivals. Their repertoire consist of Ancient and Classical Music on historical replicas (Biedermeier guitar, baroque mandolin) as well as the interpretation of Romantic and Contemporary Music. Several composers already wrote pieces dedicated to the Duo, including the “Suite for mandolin and guitar” (Op. 40) by Burkhard Wolters, which was recorded on this CD. The title of the piece “Montuno” comes from the first movement. The expression “Montuno” refers to the Cuban Sierra Maestra, the eastern mountain range of Cuba and represent an instrumental part of Cuban Music as well as a special style of dancing, the so-called “Son”. The CD “Montuno” is the second recording of the Duo ReCuerda. Their debut CD was published in May 2008 by Trekel Records.
