The Madeis Duo are a guitar & cello duo created in 2016 at the RNCM.
Both students are in their final year of their undergraduate degree. Their repertoire is varied, focused both on classical guitar/cello music, but also Spanish, Croatian & folk music, reflecting their backgrounds & interests. Both are very experienced musicians & performers already, playing in several different genres & styles. Antonio Persak is from Croatia & started playing classical guitar at the age of six. As a performing guitarist, he has successfully participated & won prizes in a number of international competitions in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina. Lola Ramirez was born in Nîmes (France) & has played in many masterclasses with renowned cellists including R. Pidoux, X. Gagnepain, & B. Cocset. She has been successful in competitions in France & England & has played in numerous orchestras.
The musical recital with afternoon tea is becoming a favourite in our festival, & the limited tickets sell out quickly.
