South American Program with Alturas Duo
Scott Hill, guitar and Carlos Boltes, viola & charango
Sending rhythmic vibrations straight to the heart of audience members with their groundbreaking performances, Alturas Duo—the only group of its kind—has been recognized as one of the most entertaining and engaging ensembles performing in the chamber music world today. With its unusual combination of viola, charango, and guitar; Alturas Duo creates spirited and passionate programs that move with ease between the Baroque of Bach, South American melodies and rhythms learned through the oral tradition and newly commissioned repertoire. Their performances oscillate from beautiful and serene to strong and pulsating, taking audiences on a journey to new musical heights and earning Alturas Duo numerous awards from First Prize at the New England International Chamber Music Competition, a CMA/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, and the 2020 World Folk Vision popular vote award and jury selection for best Latin Music Band.
