Two Part Invention to Perform Nocturnes & Lullabies at Moravian College

Two Part InventionBethlehem, Pa., February 8, 2011--Two Part Invention will perform music by Giuliani, Tarrega, Molino, Paganini, Chopin, Schubert, and others on Saturday, February 12 at 7:30 p.m. in Peter Hall, Moravian College. John Arnold, guitar, and Nora Suggs, flute will perform in the concert entitled "Nocturnes & Lullabies."

John Arnold is the classical guitar instructor at Moravian College. Nora Suggs is an artist lecturer in flute at the College.

Two Part Invention is a duet of flute and guitar, performing a wide repertoire ranging from Elizabethan ballads to modern commissioned works. "This combination of flute and guitar ... is a winning one," hails Allentown's Morning Call, and praises their "lovely, goosebump-inducing performances" as well as their "great skill and musicality."

Creatively programmed concerts may blend Bach's baroque mastery with contemporary Argentine tangos, or feature original arrangements of historical Moravian music, classics from the great guitar virtuosos of the 19th century, dances from around the globe, or more. The duo has recorded three CDs -- a selection of flute and guitar music from Latin America; duo arrangements of historical works from the Moravian music tradition; and their new recording, "Bad Pets," featuring music commissioned and premiered by Two Part Invention, released in December 2009.

Admission for the concert is $15 general admission and $10 for seniors and students. Advance tickets can be purchase online at: http://www.lvartsboxoffice.org/.
