Gotham Guitar Duo is a New York City based Classical Guitar Duo dedicated to exploring the diverse repertoire of music for two guitars. In the summer of 2013 the Duo, Rob Adler and James Wellington, both active Performers and educators in New York, met in Alexandria, VA at the Institute for Suzuki Guitar. Within minutes the pair realized they shared the same passion for exploring the many varieties of music offered by the guitar.
One week later, they met for their first rehearsal back in New York City, where they began to build a repertoire of music featuring works from a great variety of cultures and time periods. Their ambition is to share Guitar Duo music with as many audiences as they can, and to encourage the expansion of the Duo repertoire through arrangements and commissions of new works.
