Guitar and Pan Pipes
The Dutch Verso Duo are unique in their field on the international scene. The association of classical guitar and pan pipes permits them to take the repertoire for classical guitar and flute and give it a warm, velvety but no less virtuoso touch! These two musicians have won several international competitions, including: Vriendenkrans and Concertgebouw Prize (Amsterdam 2003), ComRadio prize for contemporary music (Barcelona 2003, the IBLA Grand and Piazzolla prizes (Italy 2006).
In their programme they try to highlight similarities and contrasts. This provides adventurous concerts where old music is placed alongside newly written music.
Close cooperation with contemporary composers such as Roderik de Man, Klaas de Vries, Guus Janssen, Daan Manneke, Chiel Meijering and Ron Ford has led to a very varied repertoire of more than sixty compositions for the greatest pleasure of us all.
