This unusual combination of cellist Boris Andrianov and classical guitarist Dimitri Illarionov is marked with the seal of true genius. Inspired by innumerable and stimulating intercultural encounters, the duo combines classical music and folk tunes in a musical expedition all over the world. They desire to share the world’s vibrant diversity, the planet’s incredible colors and unbelievable contrasts – eliminating physical, historic, or stylistic distances.
“His profound musicality and phrasing impresses one almost immediately.”
– Zubin Mehta, Director Emeritus of Israel Philharmonic Orchestra“
“Illarionov commands attention with his fluent technique and bright basic sound, ‘in-your-face’ from the beginning of the first item..”
John Duarte, Gramophone
