Duo Sonidos brings the striking combination of the guitar and violin to the forefront of classical chamber music. Established at New England Conservatory in 2006 by William Knuth and Adam Levin, Duo Sonidos has performed extensively in Europe and the United States. From 2008-2011, the Duo performed extensively in Europe while Knuth and Levin were studying as Fulbright Scholars in Vienna and Madrid, respectively.  In 2010, Duo Sonidos released their self-titled debut CD featuring musicby Astor Piazzolla, Manuel de Falla, Salvador Brotons, plus the premiere recording of Volavérunt by Eduardo Morales-Caso.  Duo Sonidos subsequently won first prize at the 2010 Luys Milan Chamber Music Competition in Valencia, Spain.

Advancing their mission to expand the chamber music repertoire with newly commissioned violin and guitar duos, Duo Sonidos will present the world premiere of Funk (2011) by Spanish-American composer Jorge Muñiz on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, 7:30 pm, at Indiana University South Bend’s Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts (where Muñiz also teaches on the music faculty).  Funk is a respectful homage to great masters of the guitar and bass like Jimi Hendrix and Bootsy Collins.
