Dale Kavanagh (Canada) and Thomas Kirchhoff (Germany) have been playing together since 1991 and have given more than 950 concerts in more than 50 European countries and North, Central and South America and Asia. Critics and audiences acknowledge the young musicians bubbling temperament in virtuoso recital, their highly sensitive creative ability in musical phrasing and articulation, and their great guitar-tone, which fills large auditoriums with a warm, rich sound.
Beside their work in chamber music programs they often take place in concerts with large orchestras and perform compositions for two guitars and orchestra by Joaquin Rodrigo, Gheorghe Zamfir, Sérgio Assad, Harald Genzmer, Carlo Domeniconi, Jaime M. Zenamon, Roland Dyens and Antonio Vivaldi and Joseph Haydn. The Amadeus Guitar Duo performs regularly with The Prague- Munich and Mannheimer Chamber Orchestra, The Philharmonia Hungarica, The President Orchestra Ankara,The Philharmonic State Orchestra Halle, the Prague Chamber Orchestra, The International Philharmonic Orchestra and The Kurpfälzische Kammerorchester Mannheim, The Mainzer Chamber Orchestra and the Thuringen Philharmonic Orchestra. They have been called the specialists for guitar and orchestra.
Twelve records (Haenssler-Classic, FONO) and regular radio and television broadcasts (BBC, CBC, ZDF, WDR, TRT, RTL a.o.) in many countries certify the high quality of the Amadeus Guitar Duo.
