From Boleros to Choros
Robert Lehman, violin
Jose Lezcano, guitar
Rebecca Hartka, cello

This unique combination of instruments can move fluidly through a range of styles. This program will feature music by Paganini, contemporary Turkish composer Refik, Lezcano’s own Cuban sketches as well as popular styles such as tangos by Piazzolla and a Brazilian Choros by Bandolim.

Hartka and Lezcano were praised by American Record Guide for their collaboration: “Hartka and Lezcano play off against each other in a subtle but effective unity of rubato relationships that brings off the sonatas with a personality that catches the ears and holds them” (D. Moore, American Record Guide). The Duo has performed together since 2014 nationally and international in venues such as the Longy School of Music, the Mariposa Museum, Saint Gaudens, Dartmouth’s Vaughan Series, the Mohawk concerts, the Arts Block, and the Tedx stage.

Duo Mundo has teamed up with violinist Robert Lehman, fellow faculty member at the University of Southern Maine to offer this program.

Specializing in repertoire and collaborations that cross cultures, Duo Mundo performed most recently with indigenous Ecuadorian musician Inti Cachimuel at the Nubanusit Neighborhood in Peterborough, NH. In 2019 and 2020 the Duo toured in Yucatán Mexico, which included a performance at Centro Cultural La Cúpula in Merida, as well as collaborations with indigenous Mayan Musicians. In March 2017 the duo performed and gave master classes in Havana, Cuba through the invitation of UNEAC for the Cello Festival of Havana. Their first recording was released in fall 2017 on Becsta Records. Michael Johnson said of the CD in Facts and Arts that it “displays a high degree of heart and total control” and that he was “captivated by the virtuosity”.
