Bringing to life the Golden Age of the Guitar
Performing in full period costume and delighting audiences in splendid venues, Dodici Corde Guitar Duo was formed in 2008 and joins together the talents of musicians Danielle Saxon Reeves and Mark Willetts.
They enjoy exploring the duo repertoire of the Early Romantic Guitar (c1780-1880), performing the rarely played works of composers such as Giuliani, Sor, Carulli, Diabelli, Mertz, Coste and L’Hoyer, whilst giving audiences a rare opportunity to hear these neglected works on period instruments; Mark owns an 1832 Panormo and Danielle plays a Terz Guitar by Lamy and a French Guitar made c1840.
They have performed in beautiful buildings and at events all over the UK; including appearances for York Guitar Festival; for Worcester Classical Guitar Society New Artist's Scheme; at Birmingham Town Hall; in the Panelled Saloon at Hartlebury Castle, Worcestershire; in the Guildhall, Bath for The Jane Austen Festival; at Great Witley Church, Worcestershire; in The Guildhall, Worcester for Worcester Early Music Festival; for Live and Local Rural Touring, in The Chapel of Sir William Turner's Almshouses, Middlesborough; for the National Trust and on BBC Radio & Television.
