Savannah Music Festival: The Assad Brothers
Airs Thursday, July 5 at 8:00 p.m. Ever since their childhood concerts in Brazil and their New York appearances as teenagers in 1969, Sergio and Odair Assad have been touring the world and recording as The Assad Brothers. They have followed a fascinating path of musical development utilizing the traditional repertoire of the guitar duo, and their virtuosity has inspired a range of composers to write for them. In this episode, we listen to the complete March 19 concert at the 2010 Savannah Music Festival, recorded at the Lucas Theatre for the Arts.
