Formed in 2000, the husband and wife guitar ensemble of Kathrin Murray and Troy King, known as the Arabesque Duo, have performed to critical acclaim at concert venues in Boston, Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Honolulu, Mendocino (CA), and Cheltenham (UK), to name a few. They have been guest artists at festivals such as the Bethlehem Guitar Festival, the Charlton Kings International Guitar Festival (UK), and the Interlochen Music Festival, and are winners of the Montpellier Arts Competition. The Glouchestershire ECHO (England) proclaimed, “Their strong musical rapport was evident in their playing… atmospheric… guitarists of world stature.” The Arabesque Duo’s recording on Centaur Records features transcriptions of piano pieces by Grieg, Brahms, Debussy, Granados and Turina. The American Record Guide wrote, “The Arabesque Duo plays beautifully on this recording, with a lovely tone and tasteful expressiveness…masterly Apollonian style.”
