Charke-Cormier Duo in Concert

Event Details

Dartmouth Community Concert Association (DCCA) presents the Charke-Cormier Duo (classical flute and guitar).

Derek Charke (flute) and Eugene Cormier (guitar) have been playing together since 2014, releasing their first critically acclaimed CD, Ex Tempore in 2018 through Leaf Music. Composer Charke often writes music for the duo, such as his Bathymetric Terrains, an exciting multi-media work for soundscape, multi-tracked flutes and guitars released as their second recording. The duo publishes their sheet music under the Charke-Cormier Duo Collection with Doberman-Yppan in Quebec. Both performers are highly accomplished musicians who are on the teaching faculty at Acadia University’s School of Music. Their sonorous union of flute and guitar has been charming audiences across the Maritimes, and their repertoire moves from the street corners of Argentina to the halls of Europe, while introducing fresh new works created today.

For this concert the Duo will perform works with a predominantly Latin flavour by Celso Machado, Granados and Zequinha de Abreu with some Debussy rounding out the program.
